Cornell men’s hockey junior forward Morgan Barron and senior defenseman Yanni Kaldis were named to the All-ECAC first team, the league announced on Tuesday. Junior defenseman Alex Green and junior goaltender Matt Galajda earned third-team honors.

Barron, also a finalist for the league’s Player of the Year award, led Cornell with 14 goals and 32 points this season. Kaldis, a four-year top-four starter on the blueline, led the team with 20 assists. This is Kaldis’ first career first-team selection.

Barron — who served as a captain this season along with Kaldis and senior forward Jeff Malott — became the first Cornell forward to earn first-team honors twice since Joe Nieuwendyk ’88 accomplished the feat in 1986 and 1987.

Green, a finalist for the ECAC’s Best Defensive Defenseman honor, posted a plus-19 rating and recorded 16 points. Galajda started all 29 games, posting a 1.56 goals against average and .931 save percentage.
