Hogs SEC Champs!!

by muslimsdonteatme on February 28, 2011

Arkansas goaltender Brendan Desjardin was named the South Eastern Collegiate Hockey Conference championship contest’s player of the game shortly after the Razorbacks wrested the title from defending champion Florida, 5-2.

Desjardin kept the medal for about two seconds before placing it around team captain Garrett Meier’s neck.

“He deserves it so much more than I do,” Desjardin said. “He started this whole program. This is his team. He’s the player of the game every game.”

Meier, a senior defenseman, was named the tournament’s most valuable player.

“I was surprised,” Meier said. “There’s a lot of camaraderie on this team, a lot of people who deserved it.”

Arkansas coach Brian Gallini considered Desjardin’s performance a key element of the victory.

“What can you say about Brendan,” Gallini said. “He’s a consistent leader. He controls his rebounds well. He even directs the puck into the corners. This is a great feeling. With this win, we set a program record for most wins in a season.”  READ MORE
