Hampus Gustafsson and Oleg Yevenko were Hockey East's Top Scholar-Athletes

Wakefield, Mass. -- Hockey East is proud to announce a league-record 109 student-athletes have been named to the league's 2013-14 All-Academic Team. Each student-athlete achieved a grade point average of 3.0 or better in each of the two academic periods during which he was actively competing.

Junior defenseman Oleg Yevenko (Minsk, Belarus) of the University of Massachusetts and freshman forward Hampus Gustafsson (Ljungby, Sweden) of Merrimack College shared the prestigious honor as Hockey East's Top Scholar-Athlete, each with a perfect 4.0 GPA for the season. A total of 11 players reached "Distinguished Scholar" status this season, having qualified for the All-Academic team in each of four seasons of varsity play. Fifteen others are three-time honorees. Gustaffson was the best of a league-leading 19 All-Academic qualifiers from Merrimack.

The Hockey East Association is a 12-team Division-I men's college hockey conference founded in 1984, and also sponsors an eight-team Division-I women's league which began play in 2002-03.
