Four Hockey Players Named AHCA All-American Scholars
TEMPE - In recognition of their exceptional results in the classroom, Jack Becker, Bronson Moore, Jacob Semik and Colin Theisen of the Arizona State men's ice hockey team were selected as Krampade All-American Scholars, the American Hockey Coaches Association announced Wednesday. The group makes up four of 283 Division I men recognized for excellence in the classroom during the 2021-22 season.
Jack Becker attained his second degree, a Master's of Legal Studies from Arizona State University in May 2022. Becker finished his five years of college hockey with 33 goals, 41 points, and 74 total points in 157 games played. He became an alternate captain of his new squad and enjoyed the best season of his career. He completed the 2021-22 season with season-highs in assists, points, power play goals, and game-winning goals. Through 33 games this season, Becker consistently stayed amongst the top-five scorers on ASU's roster.
Bronson Moore graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Sciences and a Masters in Science of Healthcare Delivery in May 2022. Following his playing career, Moore plans to pursue a career as a doctor and recently earned a full-time position with a medical sales company. Moore spent two seasons between the pipes for ASU after moving up from ASU's ACHA Division I club team. He finished his career with nine saves in two NCAA Division I games played.
Jacob Semik, the one returner of the group for the 2022-23 season, is pursuing a degree in Communications. Semik was named an alternate captain last season and notched 34 games in his junior year. He blocked 31 shots and finished the season as a +1 plus/minus. The Michigan native also earned Pac-12 All-Academic Honors for the 2021-22 season.
Colin Theisen transferred to Arizona State to play one last season of college hockey and attain his second degree of a Master of Sports Law & Business. In 2021-22, he became one of just 28 NCAA Division I college hockey players in history to play 175 games. A Hobey Baker Award candidate and Senior CLASS Award top-10 finalist, Theisen was awarded the captains 'C' this season. In just one year at ASU, he made an immediate impact - leaping into the program's single-season record books with his best season of hockey to date - he's produced more goals, assists, shots, power play goals, and short-handed goals than ever before. All the while, he led the Sun Devil scoresheet and was a top-10 national scorer.
To qualify for the Krampade All-American Scholars, a student-athlete must have attained a 3.75 GPA for each semester, and had to appear in 40% of the team's games. Exceptions were granted to injured players and back-up goaltenders.
