Minnesota State unveiled its men's hockey postseason awards on Thursday, and senior Kael Mouillierat was voted the team's most valuable player. Ben Youds, Evan Mosey, Jerad Stewart and Rylan Galiardi were also award winners.
Mouillierat had 13 goals and 12 assists for 25 points last season. Ten of his goals and 18 of his points came in the final 22 games. He finished his career with 92 points, ranking 10th on the Mavericks' Division I-era scoring list. He also scored nine game-winning goals in his career, which put him seventh on MSU's all-time list.
Youds, a junior, was named the Mavericks' unsung hero award winner. He led MSU in scoring and assists with three goals and 23 assists, all career highs. He is the program's fifth defenseman to lead the team in scoring. Kurt Davis led the Mavs in 2009-10.
Mosey, a freshman defenseman, was named most-improved player. He finished the season with five points in 20 games but went from a player battling for the sixth D spot to a regular and a power-play member by the time the playoffs came around.
Stewart was got the Mr. Hustle Award as the team's hardest worker. He had career highs for goals (13), assists (12) and points (25) during his senior year. He played in all 39 games and scored three game-winners.
Galiardi was the Buffalo Wild Wings Star of the Year, earning the most points in the three-stars-of-the-game voting during home games. The junior forward had 16 points in his last 19 game and finished with 11 goals and 25 points.
