OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Northern Michigan's Brock Maschmeyer was one of 10 student-athletes selected as finalists for the 2016-17 Senior CLASS Award® in collegiate hockey.
Wildcat fans can vote for Maschmeyer daily by visiting the Senior CLASS Award® website. Fan voting runs from February 17 to March 28 and is one third of the criteria that determines the winner.
An alternate captain as a junior and senior, Maschmeyer currently ranks seventh all-time among Wildcat defensemen with 24 career goals. On January 21, he became the 20th Wildcat defenseman to score at least 60 points in his career; he now has 64 points on 24 goals and 40 assists.
Since the calendar turned to 2017, Maschmeyer has been among the WCHA's top point producing defensemen. He is tied for first with eight points (2g-6a) in 10 games. His five power-play points (1g-4a) is good for first among WCHA blueliners.
Maschmeyer has excelled in the classroom, being named a WCHA Scholar-Athlete all three seasons he was eligible to receive this honor. A Public Relations major with a minor in Communications, he is on pace to graduate in May 2017.
Maschmeyer has been a key contributor on special teams throughout his collegiate career. He skated in his 100th game on February 13, 2016, and was last held out of the lineup in February of his freshman season. In both 2014-15 and 2015-16, he was one of only five Wildcats to play in all 38 games. This season, he is one of nine to play in every tilt to date.
In 2014-15, Maschmeyer netted nine goals to become the first blueliner to lead Northern Michigan in goal scoring. For being one of only two defensemen to crack the top 30 in league goal scoring, he was also named to the 2015 all-WCHA third team.
