Men’s Hockey’s Carlile Earns Hockey East All-Rookie Team Honor


NORTH ANDOVER, Mass. – Merrimack College men’s hockey defenseman Declan Carlile was named to the Pro Ambitions Hockey East All-Rookie team, as announced by the league office Tuesday morning.

The first-year player had an incredible campaign for the Warriors. He tallied 22 points in 34 games on four goals and 18 assists and also had 18 points in 24 conference games. Nationally, Carlile tied for fourth in the nation in scoring by a rookie defenseman and was second in the conference in the category behind just Zac Jones of UMass, who finished with one more point.

He also came up just three points shy of Darrel Scoville’s record of rookie defenseman scoring in the Division I era for Merrimack, which was set during the 1995-96 season.

Carlile was a member of Merrimack’s 15-man freshman class that accounted for 47% of the team’s overall scoring. He led the way with his 22 points.

During his impressive campaign, he was ranked number 209th among North American skaters by NHL Central Scouting, which is used to rank NHL Draft eligible prospects.

He is also a finalist for Hockey East’s Rookie of the Year award, which is set to be announced Thursday.
