The Northern Collegiate Hockey Association announced its men's end-of-season awards on Thursday and Lake Forest College had a pair of honorees.

Forester junior Louis-Philippe De Courcy was one of two All-NCHA goaltenders after leading the league in save percentage during conference play (.936). He posted a 12-8-1 overall record on the season and ranks 17th in the nation with a .928 save percentage and 21st with a goals against average of 2.15 in all games. De Courcy tied a program record and ranks tied-for-second in the country with four shutouts this season and surrendered just one goal in six additional starts. He stopped at least 90 percent of shots on goal in 15 of 21 appearances.

After ranking seventh among first-year players in the conference with 17 points on nine goals and eight assists, Lake Forest forward Aaron O'Neill was named to the NCHA All-Freshman Team. O'Neill accounted for the Foresters' first tally of the season in a 4-2 triumph over University of Wisconsin-Superior on October 27 and had at least one goal or assist in 12 games. Among his nine scores on the year were three power play goals, a short-handed score, and a pair of game-winners.

Lake Forest finished the season with a 15-11-2 overall record and placed third in the NCHA South Division standings at 10-6-2 in league play. The Foresters swept their NCHA Harris Cup quarterfinal series at Concordia University Wisconsin before falling at Adrian College, the top-ranked team in the nation, in the semifinals.
