Romeo and Harley: All-SUNYAC

 Ryan Romeo and Andrew Harley of the SUNY Brockport men's hockey team were named to SUNYAC All-Conference teams in a release by the conference office on Monday. Romeo was named to the first team and is making his third straight all-conference team, while Harley earned his first all-league third team recognition.  The conference's major individual awards, including players of the year will be released on March 3rd
Romeo is making his third straight all-conference appearance, including his second straight first-team selection.  He is the third (two of his own) Brockport selection to the first team dating back to 2016 when Chase Nieuwendyk was named a first team forward.  The first team selection marks the 10th time in program history that a Brockport player has been picked to the SUNYAC's top all-conference team.  He joins Nieuwendyk and Chris Luker as the program's only two-time first team selections.

His 37 points this season are the most for a Golden Eagle since Nieuwendyk registered 37 points back in 2016.  His 25 assists this season are the most for a Golden Eagle since Ian Finnerty registered 25 assists back in 2012. His 25 assists this season are tied for seventh on the program's all-time single season list. He ranks second nationally among defenders in total points and 16th nationally among all skaters.  Over the course of his career at Brockport he has played in 96 career games, and he has 87 total points on 28 goals and 59 assists. 

Andrew Harley is making his first SUNYAC All-Conference team in his first season on the ice with the Golden Eagles.  He ranks second on the team with 32 total points.  His 15 goals lead the team.  He ranks in the top 30 nationally in scoring this season and in the top five among first year players.  Harley has nine multi-point games this season to go along with three game-winning goals.  He has four power-play goals and registered three or more points five times this season. He has a career-high four points on two goals and two assists in a 7-2 win over Canton back in late January.  Harley joins teammate Connor Galloway as the first rookies to score 30 or more points in a single season since Tim Kielich achieved the feat as a freshman back in 2016.
