Fox, Kerfoot Earn CCM/AHCA All-America Accolades

CHICAGO – Harvard men's hockey freshman Adam Fox has been named a 2016-17 CCM/AHCA first team East All-American and senior Alexander Kerfoot has been selected to the second team.

Fox becomes the first freshman in Harvard history to earn All-America honors. Kerfoot and Fox become the 28th and 29th players in program history to receive All-America recognition and this season's selections represent the 41st and 42nd honors for the Crimson. They are the first set of teammates to earn All-America in the same season since 2011-12 when Daniel Biega '13 and Alex Killorn '12 were honored.

Fox made the transition to the collegiate game look easy this season and has pulled in a slew of awards. He has been recognized as the Ivy League and ECAC Hockey Rookie of the Year. Additionally, he was a Walter Brown Award semifinalist and was selected to the ECAC Hockey Tournament and NCAA East Regional teams. His 1.15 points per game mark is tops nationally among all defensemen, and ranks fourth among rookies. Most recently, he received the Bob Monahan Award as the best defenseman in New England, as voted on by the New England Hockey Writers.

Senior co-captain Kerfoot has also racked up the honors this year, including earning a spot on the New England All-Star team beside Fox. He was a first team All-ECAC Hockey selection, as well as a Hobey Baker Top 10 finalist and Senior CLASS Award finalist.  He is tied for the team-lead this season with 44 points. His 1.26 point per game mark ranks him 14th in the country. His leadership on and off the ice has helped drive the Crimson to a 28-5-2 overall record, the most wins since the 1988-89 season (31) and the fewest losses in Division I college hockey.
