Senior Mark McCutcheon didn’t lead the Red to a Frozen Four appearance this year, but that did not stop the Pittsford, N.Y., native from making the trip to St. Louis.
This past weekend, McCutcheon won a pair of events in the Frozen Four’s skill challenge.
In the accuracy event, McCutcheon took top honors after hitting four targets in eight shots.
In addition, the Cornell forward won the power challenge, launching a 96.4mph shot — more than five miles faster than last year’s winner James Shipley of the Milwaukee School of Engineering.
McCutcheon also participated in the East vs. West game. His team, the East, lost by a score of 13-10.
McCutcheon was the second player from the Red to participate in the events in two years since Matt Moulson ’06 played last year.
In his senior season, McCutcheon scored ten goals, had nine assists and totaled 19 points.
Over the course of his career, McCutcheon played 117 games, recorded 19 goals, 24 assists, 43 poitns and a mark of plus-three.
At season’s end, McCutcheon was named second-team All-Ivy league with a league-leading nine power-play points. Some of those coming from his team-leading seven power-play goals.
