EAST REGION PLAYER OF THE YEAR - TEAL GOVE, SR., PLATTSBURGH STATE

Plattsburgh State senior forward Teal Gove claims honors as D3hockey.com East Region Player of the Year thanks to a season that saw her lead the nation in scoring as she posted 29 goals and 21 assists for 50 points while leading the Cardinals to a 27-1-2 record and third-place finish in the NCAA Tournament.

Gove's 1.67 points per game led the country, while her 29 goals were second-most in the East Region and the nation.  In her 115 game career at Plattsburgh, Gove amassed 76 goals, 63 points and 119 points and was assessed a mere four penalties.

On top of her prolific career on the ice, the Berwick, Ontario native has been a model off it as she holds a 3.85 grade point average that includes three consecutive 4.0 semesters.  Additionally, she serves as a student ambassador on campus, and volunteers time at the local hospital as well as with the Plattsburgh Youth Hockey Association.

 

EAST REGION COACH OF THE YEAR - DEAN JACKSON, ELMIRA

Elmira head coach Dean Jackson is the recipient of the inaugural D3hockey.com East Region Coach of the Year Award.

In just his first season behind the Elmira bench, Jackson guided the Soaring Eagles to a 24-5-1 mark and the program's third national title.  He became the first Division III head coach, men or women, to win a national title in his first season since Neumann men's coach Dominick Dawes accomplished the feat in 2009.

A native of Don Mills, Ontario, Jackson was a four year letter-winner for the Soaring Eagles men's program.  He graduated in 2003 with a degree in business administration.
