PROVIDENCE, RI - Brown juniors Sean Hurley (Rutland, VT) and Jeff Prough (Farmington Hills, MI), and freshman Dan Rosen (Syosset, NY) have been named to the 2007 All-Ivy team in a vote by the six Ivy League men's hockey coaches. An Honorable Mention selection in 2006, Prough was named First Team All-Ivy along with Hurley, while Rosen was named the Second Team goalie.
The Bears' leading scorer for the second year in a row, Prough notched a career-high 33 points this season (16g, 17a), averaging just over a point per game. He led the Ivy League this season with nine goals and four power-play goals in League games only. His 33 points ranked second in overall scoring, behind only Player of the Year David Jones of Dartmouth, while his 16 goals on the season was also second in the Ivy League. In 96 career games, Prough has 83 points (42g, 41a), which is the most since Ryan Mulhern '96 finished his junior season with 93 points in 1995.
Hurley is making his first appearance on the All-Ivy team this season after leading all Ivy defensemen in scoring with 24 points (10g, 14a), which ranked second on the Brown team. In Ivy games only, Hurley was also among the top scorers, tying for first with 8 points. With one season left to play, Hurley has already etched his name in the Brown record books in several scoring categories among defensemen. His 10 goals this season ranks ninth all-time at Brown for goals scored in a season by a defenseman, while his 19 career goals ranks eighth all-time at Brown for goals scored in a career by a defenseman. He will likely enter both the career assists by a defenseman and career points by a defenseman as he currently has 41 assists, two shy of 10th all-time, and 60 career points, five shy of 10th all-time.
Rosen was named the Second Team goalie after helping to lead the Bears in net this season with a 2.74 GAA, sixth all-time at Brown, a .920 save percentage, fifth all-time at Brown, and 839 saves, fourth all-time at Brown. His .920 save percentage led all goalies in the Ivy League, while his .926 save percentage in Ivy games only was second. During the season, Rosen led the nation in both GAA and save percentage for eight straight weeks, while earning the HCA Rookie of the Month award for the month of December and several ECACHL Goalie and Rookie of the Week honors during the year.
