Ben Meyers and Brian Halonen are still catching eyes as collegians

Brian Halonen had something to celebrate in 2017, and he has something else in 2022: a Hobey Baker Award nomination.

Brian Halonen and Ben Meyers, players who keyed Delano’s Class 1A boys’ hockey state tournament debut in 2017, were among 77 nominees for college hockey’s Hobey Baker Memorial Award.

Halonen is a forward at Michigan Tech, Meyers a forward at Minnesota. A list of 10 finalists will be named March 16, followed by the “Hobey Hat Trick” of three finalists on March 31 and the announcement of the winner on April 8.

Milestone hit

Holy Angels senior Carter Hermanson recently recorded his 100th career point. Hermanson was also a Star Tribune All-Metro first-team selection in soccer last fall, helping the Stars take second in the Class 2A boys’ soccer state tournament.
