College hockey’s biggest stars were celebrated Friday in Chicago, with awards presented for AHCA All-Americans and more.

Will Butcher headlined the honors, capturing the Hobey Baker Award in a ceremony televised live on NHL Network.

Butcher was joined by teammates Henrik Borgstrom (first team) and Tanner Jaillet (second team) on the AHCA All-America teams. Jaillet also captured the 2017 Mike Richter Award as the nation’s top goaltender.

Denver (3), Harvard (2), Omaha (2), St. Lawrence (2) and Union (2) had the most All-America honorees of the 19 schools represented.

Two second-team All-Americans became part of just the fourth and fifth sets of father/son All-Americans in history. Notre Dame’s Anders Bjork joined his father Kirt as an All-American, as did Omaha’s Luc Snuggerud with his father, Dave.
