Porter, Berenson, Pacioretty Honored

In addition to Kevin Porter being named a Hobey Finalist today, Michigan won three major awards tonight at the CCHA Awards Banquet. Kevin Porter was named CCHA Player of the Year, Red Berenson took home Coach of the Year honors and Max Pacioretty earned the Rookie of the Year title.

Amazingly, this is just the second time that Berenson has taken home Coach of the Year honors. That seems like a shockingly low number considering all he's accomplished at Michigan--and considering Enrico Blasi has won the award three times.

Justin Abdelkader's +11 for Michigan State was good enough to be named Most Likely to Take Dumbass Penalties Best Defensive Forward, an award that Porter was up for as well. He can put that next to Jeff Lerg's Hobey nomination on the "Things that were based more on the tournament last year" list.

All in all, a great night for the Wolverines.
