A standout on the ice, in the classroom and around the community, Clarkson University’s Devin Brosseau was named the winner of the ECAC Hockey’s prestigious Student-Athlete of the Year Award for 2018-19.
A junior, who will graduate this spring with a Bachelor’s Degree in Financial Information Analysis, Brosseau has compiled a grade point average of 3.974. The St. Lambert, Que, native will pursue his MBA next year as he completes his final season of eligibility for the Golden Knights.
“I have been in college coaching for twenty-eight years at some great institutions and Devin is in a league of his own when it comes to combining excellence in his sport, in the classroom, and in the community,” said Clarkson Head Coach Casey Jones. “Devin is a captain on our team, which in itself takes enormous time and effort, but he understands the balance that is required to excel in all facets of student life. Devin takes the lead on all community service projects with our team and is always ready to donate his time.”
Brosseau has earned numerous academic honors. He was inducted into Clarkson’s Phalanx, the University’s highest honorary society (leadership/service) as a sophomore. He has been a Clarkson Presidential Scholar in each of his first five semesters and is a member of Beta Alpha Psi – International honor organization for Financial Information students. Brosseau has been selected an AHCA Krampade Scholar All-American and named to ECAC Hockey’s All-Academic team after his freshman and sophomore seasons
Brosseau spearheaded the Golden Knights’ Team IMPACT with a local disabled teenager, headed up this year’s Clarkson Hockey’s Involvement with the Headway Foundation, was co-organizer for Clarkson Hockey’s – Hockey Fights Cancer night at Cheel Arena, Clarkson Hockey’s Team Captain for Relay For Life to raise money for the American Cancer Society and has volunteer for visiting/reading at local elementary schools along with a host of other community service activities.
On the ice, the three-year veteran has excelled as Clarkson’s third leading scorer. A left wing, Brosseau has tallied 25 points on 12 goals and 13 assists, and leads the Knights in power-play markers with six. He also has two game-winners. Brosseau is coming off a career game with a two-goal, one-assist effort in the Game 2, 5-2 win over Yale this past Saturday.
Brosseau has helped to lead Clarkson to its second consecutive 20-win campaign, a return trip to Lake Placid for the ECAC Hockey Championship Tournament and another likely berth into the NCAA Tournament. The Knights are ranked ninth in the national polls with a 24-10-2 overall record.
Clarkson will meet up with Harvard in the semifinal round on Friday in Lake Placid for the second consecutive season. Face off is slated for 7:30 p.m.
Brosseau is the second Clarkson player to have ever won the elite honor. Matt Zarbo ’14 earned ECAC Hockey Student-Athlete of the Year recognition in 2012-13.
