Tigers Clean Up At WCHA Awards Ceremony

(Above) Colorado College goaltender Richard Bachman accepts player of the year honors from the WCHA, becoming only the second player in league history to be named player and rookie of the year in the same season. NHL goaltender Curtis Joseph, a former Wisconsin player, is the other. It was Bachman's second speech of the day.

(Above) Named WCHA defensive player of the year, Tigers defenseman Jack Hillen credited his teammates with the award and said he was honored to be named top defensive player with the likes of North Dakota's Taylor Chorney and Wisconsin's Jamie McBain in the league.
