Colin Larkin earns USCHO Division III Player of the Year


Following a brilliant senior season that has already earned Massachusetts-Boston forward multiple postseason honors, including All-American status, the Joe Concannon Award, and the Sid Watson Award, Colin Larkin is the USCHO D-III player of the year. The Waterford, Michigan, native capped off a brilliant four-year career with the Beacons before signing two professional contracts with the NHL’s Edmonton Oilers.

“It is just so great to see Colin get recognized like this,” said coach Peter Belisle. “He has earned it with everything he did on and off the ice here at Massachusetts-Boston. It is a terrific recognition for him and the program he helped make better every year since his arrival. He worked so hard to make himself and the players around him better.”
