Hockey East frequently features some of the nation's most talented players, and this season is no exception.
So when it comes to handing out the annual hardware, the decision-making process could prove difficult. NESN's Josh Ciocco is confident in his picks, though, which comes after much deliberation.
Ciocco gives the University of Maine's Brian Flynn the nod as Hockey East Player of the Year. UMass-Lowell head coach Norm Bazin and Merrimack goaltender Joe Cannata are among the others who would earn hardware if it was up to Ciocco.
