Daniels named CIS Second Team All-Canadian
SASKATOON (March 14, 2013) - Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks men's hockey goaltender Ryan Daniels of Pickering, Ont., was named a CIS Second Team All-Canadian on Wednesday night as the major award winners and All-Canadians were announced at the SaskTel Awards Presentation at TCU Place in Saskatoon.

The fourth year netminder becomes the first Laurier player to earn national honours since Jean-Michel Rizk of Dunham, Que., and Mark Voakes of St. Thomas, Ont., were both named All-Canadians back in the 2008-09 season. He is also the first Golden Hawks goaltender to be named an All-Canadian since current Kitchener Rangers Chief Operating Officer Steve Bienkowski was honoured 29 year ago, in the 1983-84 season.

This season Daniels was instrumental in leading Laurier to 14-12-2 record. The fourth year business major saw action in 27 games, seeing nearly 1,600 minutes of ice time. He led the country in saves with 894 while posting the seventh-best save percentage at a sparkling 0.920. His 13 wins were tenth best in the CIS while his two shutouts matched his personal single-season record.

Daniels was also influential in the Golden Hawks late-season surge to claim fifth place in the OUA West, despite being out of a playoff position in late November. Daniels was also named the OUA West Most Valuable Player, Top Goaltender, and became an OUA all-star for the third time, begin named to the first team this year after second team honours last year and a first team nod in 2010-11.
