For the second consecutive season, goaltender Kieran Millan was named the Most Valuable Player of the Boston University men's ice hockey team.
Millan capped his stellar career by posting a 20-14-1 record, a .923 save percentage and a 2.60 goals-against average to lead the Terriers to NCAA tournament. His numbers in Hockey East play improved to .927 and 2.39 as he helped BU finish in a tie for second in the league standings.
The senior earned the Hockey East Three Stars Award and broke his own BU record for saves in a season with 1,110. The Edmonton native established school records for wins (81), saves (3768) and games played by a goaltender (138) and he set a Hockey East Tournament record with 189 saves. He also became the first netminder in school history to shut out both Boston College and New Hampshire in the same season.
Millan is the first Terrier to earn back-to-back team MVP honors outright since fellow goaltender Sean Fields in 2003 and 2004.
