HAVERHILL, Mass. – Zach McKelvie and Owen Meyer were among the 18 players selected when the Atlantic Hockey Association announced its 10th Anniversary Teams. Atlantic Hockey coaches, athletic directors, media and fans voted for the squads.
McKelvie, West Point Class of 2009, was chosen as a third-team defenseman. Meyer, West Point Class of 2010, was tabbed as a third-team forward.
Three forwards, two defensemen and a goalie were picked for each of the three teams.
