MSU awards: Lee named MVP

Pat Christman/The Free Press
Minnesota State announced its team award winners for the 2011-12 season on Friday, and senior goaltender Austin Lee was named the team's most valuable player.

Lee closed out his career with a 56-save performance in the Mavericks' double-overtime loss to Minnesota Duluth in Game 2 of their WCHA playoff series. Lee won five games during the season and had a .910 save percentage and a 3.07 goals-against average.

Other award winners included:

• Joe Schiller, Unsung Hero and the Don Brose Leadership Award.

• Mat Knoll and Johnny McInnis, tied for the Most Improved Player Award

• Adam Mueller, Hustle Award (hardest worker)

You can read MSU's full release on the award winners here.

So how did PucKato do in his predictions? Well, 2 for 4, not bad. I picked Tyler Elbrecht as MVP and hardest worker but picked Schiller for Unsung Hero and McInnis for Most Improved.
