Johnny Gaudreau - Boston College
Junior Forward; Carneys Point, N.J.
Just as he did in November, when he last earned Player of the Month honors, Johnny Gaudreau had a point in each game in the Eagles 7-0-1 month. Three times he enjoyed two-goal games and on January 18 when BC thumped Maine, 7-2, Gaudreau set up five goals. He is the nation's leading scorer as the calendar turns to February.

Runners-up:
Kevin Hayes, BC (Sr., F, Dorchester, Mass.) 8 GP, 17 pts. (8g, 9a)
Chris McCarthy, Vermont (Sr., F, Collegeville, Penn.) 8 GP, 11pts. (7g, 4a)

Photo STOP IT GOALTENDER OF THE MONTH
Clay Witt - Northeastern University
Junior Goaltender; Brandon, Florida
Witt played six of his seven January games against teams who were ranked in USCHO's Top 20 in the nation. And against that schedule, he stopped 95% of the shots sent his way. In backto- back wins midway through the month, he had 47 and 46 saves, respectively, the former coming at Fenway Park against UMass Lowell. His final win of the month was a 30-save shutout at Notre Dame.

Runners-up:
Connor Hellebuyck, UMass Lowell (Sophomore, Commerce, Michigan) 4 GP, 2-1-1, .916, 2.23
Casey DeSmith, UNH (Junior; Rochester, N.H.) 8 GP, 5-3-0, .929, 2.39

Thatcher Demko - Boston College
Freshman Goalie; San Diego, Calif.
Playing four of his five January games on the road did nothing to rattle this young freshman goalie. Already posting strong numbers through his first four starts, he put it all together at #7 Providence, stopping all 30 shots for his first career shutout, a 2-0 win over the Friars.

Runners-up:
Mario Puskarich, Vermont (F, Fort Walton Beach, Fla.) 8 GP, 9 pts. (4g, 5a)
Vince Hinostroza, Notre Dame (F, Bartlett, Ill.) 8 GP, 8 pts. (3g, 5a)
