Borelli and Lorito Named All-ECAC

PROVIDENCE, RI – Brown senior goalie Anthony Borelli (Grand Island, NY) and sophomore Matt Lorito (Oakville, Ontario) have been named All-ECAC in a vote by the League's 12 head coaches and announced at the ECAC Hockey Championship reception on Thursday night in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Lorito was named Second Team All-League, while Borelli was named Third Team All-League, as both earned All-ECAC honors for the first time in their respective careers.

In addition to Borelli and Lorito earning All-League recognition, Borelli was also a finalist for the Ken Dryden Goaltender of the Year Award, won by Quinnipiac's Eric Hartzell, and Brown was a finalist for the Turfer Athletic/Joe Marsh Sportsmanship Trophy, won by Dartmouth.

Lorito finished the regular season as Brown's leading scorer and has continued to lead the Bears through five playoff games, accounting for 20 goals, nearly 23% of the team's total, and 35 points. He is the first Brown player since Damian Prescott '98 to score 20 goals in a season and his 35 points is the most since Brent Robinson '04 had 38 in 2002-03. Lorito led the Bears with seven power play goals and one short-handed goal, and was second on the team with two game-winning goals and 304 faceoff wins. Lorito is one of seven Bears to have played in all 34 games and posted 9-12-21 totals in 22 ECAC Hockey contests, sixth overall in the League. His nine goals ranked 10th in the League, while his 12 assists also ranked 10th in the League. Overall, Lorito is currently sixth in the League in points and second in both goals and power play goals. In 58 career games, Lorito has contributed 52 points (24g, 28a).

Borelli has led Brown between the pipes this season, playing in 26 games, making 23 starts and posting a 1.87 GAA, eighth in the country, a .942 save percentage, third in the country, and three shutouts. Since taking over the Bears' starting job in late December, Borelli has helped lead the team to an 12-8-2 record, dating back to December 29th. In 18 ECAC Hockey contests, Borelli posted a 1.72 GAA, third in the league, and a .947 save percentage, first in the league.

Borelli, Lorito and the rest of the team return to action tomorrow, Friday, March 22, when they face #1/#2 Quinnipiac in the ECAC Hockey Semifinals at 4:00 p.m. The Bears advanced to the ECAC Championship weekend for the first time since 2010 following a First Round series win over Clarkson (3-0, 3-2) and a Quarterfinal series win over Rensselaer (3-1, 2-6, 4-3).
