Strong seasons help McAdam, Pedrie earn All-Conference honors.

Penn State nabbed two spots on the All-Big Ten second team as junior goaltender Eamon McAdam and freshman defenseman Vince Pedrie both garnered the honors for the Nittany Lions. Pedrie also grabbed a spot on the All-Freshman team -- the first Nittany Lion to nab that honor -- while junior forward David Goodwin was an All-Big Ten honorable mention this season. The selections were made by the league's coaches and members of the media.

McAdam's .915 save percentage led the Big Ten through the regular season while his 2.88 goals against average was second in the conference. His 12-7-1 record is a new single-season record for wins by a netminder at Penn State. The career high numbers for the New York Islander draft pick plus solid play all season helped put McAdam on the map for the award.

Pedrie notched 22 points in 32 games for Penn State this year, giving him a points per game average of .69, second-best by a defenseman in the Big Ten this season. His eight goals were the best by any defenseman on the Penn State roster, and are a school record in a overwhelmingly successful first year as a Nittany Lion.

Goodwin's honorable mention comes off of a season where the junior just missed scoring one point per game, with 34 points in 36 games. His 34 points led the Nittany Lions all season, and had him tied for eighth in the Big Ten.

Congratulations, Eamon, Vince, and David!
