FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. — Bowling Green forward Ryan Carpenter and defenseman Bobby Shea were second-team selections on the All-Central Collegiate Hockey Association team announced Wednesday. CCHA PRESS RELEASE
Carpenter is tied for fourth in the league in scoring with 33 points, totaling 18 goals and 15 assists in 39 games
The sophomore’s 18 goals are tied for second in the league and he’s tied for second in power-play goals with six. His on-ice rating of plus-12 is tied for 10th in the league.
Shea has provided the Falcons with solid offense and defense, and a physical presence.
The 5-11, 195-pound senior is the third-highest scoring blueliner in the CCHA with 20 points. He has four goals and 16 assists in 38 games.
Shea has an on-ice rating of plus-19, which is second-best among all players and first among defensemen.
Carpenter received one first-team vote and was the sixth-highest vote getter among the forwards. Shea had two first-team votes and was the fourth-highest vote getter among the defensemen. League coaches selected the teams.
Named to the first-team were forwards Austin Czarnik and Riley Barber of Miami, and Anders Lee of Notre Dame; defensemen Jacob Trouba of Michigan and Dan DeKeyser of Western Michigan; and goalie Brady Hjelle of Ohio State.
Barber is the son of former Falcon star Don Barber. Riley Barber is the CCHA’s leading scorer with 36 points. He has 15 goals and 21 assists. He’s sixth in the league in goals and tied for fourth in assists.

Receiving honorable mention were forwards Ryan Dzingel of OSU, Domenic Monardo, Kyle Bonis of Ferris State and Bryan Rust of ND; defenseman Matthew Caito of Miami; and goalie CJ Motte of Ferris.
The first- and second-teams were picked by position, and honorable mention then went to the next six highest vote getters, regardless of position.
Carpenter and Shea were the first Falcons to earn All-CCHA honors since forward Dan Sexton was an honorable-mention selection in 2009.
The last Falcon to be named to the second-team was forward Derek Whitmore in 2008 and BG’s last first-team All-CCHA honoree was Jordan Sigalet in 2004. He was a goalie.
Shea is the first BG defenseman to be named to the all-league team since Mike Jones was selected to the second-team in 1999.
