Men’s Hockey Places Four on All-Ivy Teams; Robertson Named First Team

PRINCETON, N.J. – Senior Dennis Robertson (Fort St. John, British Columbia) was named First Team All-Ivy, junior Matt Lorito (Oakville, Ontario) earned Second Team All-Ivy, and both sophomore Nick Lappin (Geneva, Ill.) and rookie Tyler Steel (Kelowna, British Columbia) received Honorable Mention accolades in a vote by the League's six head coaches.

Robertson, who was placed on the First Team for the second time in as many years, was named All-Ivy for the fourth-straight season after Second Team honors in both 2011 and 2012. A two-time team captain, Robertson put together another impressive all-around season for the Bears. He started 28 games on left defense and logged substantial minutes as one half of the team's top defensive pairing. He finished with 17 points on six goals and 11 assists, posting five points in Ivy League contests. He led the team with 55 blocked shots and finished with a +10 rating to go along with five power-play goals.

Lorito picked up All-Ivy honors for the second-straight year as he followed up a career sophomore season with an impressive junior campaign, appearing in all 29 games at both wing and center. He finished with 29 points behind 10 goals and shared a team high with 19 assists. Lorito paced the Bears with 11 points on five goals and six assists in 10 Ivy League contests. Lorito had one short-handed goal and two power-play goals during the season.

Lappin earned a spot on the All-Ivy team for the first time in his career. Lappin put together a breakout season for the Bears, playing in 28 games at right wing as part of the team's top line. He ranked second on the team in points with 12 goals and tied for a team high with 19 assists. A key special teams player, Lappin tied a team high with five power-play goals. He recorded nine multiple-point contests, including a pair of four-point performances.

Steel, who also earned All-Ivy honors for the first time in his career, started 19 games in net for the Bears as a rookie. He was 5-4-0 during Ivy League contests. Steel posted his first career shutout in a 2-0 victory at Harvard and allowed just two goals or less in seven games during the regular season.
