Merrimack senior goaltender Craig Pantano was awarded the 2019 TMR Fans’ Award, after receiving the majority of the vote.
The TMR Awards are yearly Merrimack men’s hockey awards voted on by readers of The Mack Report. The Fans’ Award is awarded to the player deemed to be the most fan-favorite.
Pantano appeared in 28 games as a senior, matching the total number of games he played as a junior. After appearing in just one game through his first two years — including none as a freshman — Pantano appeared in 56 games for the Warriors over his final two seasons.
This is the second TMR Award for Pantano after he was named the 2018 Most Improved/Comeback Player of the Year.
