With the conference tournament now underway, Atlantic Hockey announced its All-Conference Teams for the 2020-21 campaign on Thursday, featuring four players with ties to the New York region.
Due to the nature of the 2021 season, in which the conference used a two-pod approach to limit travel and curb the spread of coronavirus, the league chose to do the awards – which typically span across the entire conference – by pods.
The eastern pod consists of AIC, Army, Bentley, Holy Cross, and Sacred Heart. The western pod is comprised of Canisius, Mercyhurst, Niagara, RIT, and Robert Morris. Air Force, the geographic outlier, played games between both of the pods.
Each pod was dealt two All-Conference Teams, plus a single All-Rookie Team.
