ST. PAUL, Minn. — Colgate sophomore hockey goalie Colton Point was named a CCM/AHCA second-team All-American announced by the American Hockey Coaches Association on Friday.

Point is the 16th All-American in program history and first since Austin Smith in the 2011-12 season, and Point is just the fourth Colgate goalie to be named an All-American, joining Howard Jones in 1939, Jeff Cooper in 1985 and Dave Gagnon in 1990.

Point is one of three players to earn All-American status before his senior season and the first sophomore in program history to be named to the team.

Colgate’s conference, the ECAC, had eight players, including Point, to be named to the All-American team, the most out of any conference in the country.

This season, Point tied a program record with six shutouts, set a program record for saves in a game with 51 and finished the season second nationally with a 1.74 goals against average and a .944 save percentage.
