Carr earns All-America hockey honors at Buffalo State

by Amy Moritz
Big news for Buffalo State men's hockey as senior Kevin Carr became just the second player to earn All-America honors.
Carr was named to the All-America Third Team by the American Hockey Coaches Association of America.
The goaltender played in every game for the Bengals this season, posting a school-record .929 save percentage along with a 2.57 goals against average. His 10 wins helped Buffalo State reach the SUNYAC semifinals for the third-straigh year. Not an easy get when you consider two SUNYAC schools -- Oswego and Geneseo -- are in the Division III Frozen Four.
In all, Carr set 10 program records for the Bengals, including career marks for saves (3,225), save percentage (.921), wins (45) and shutouts (9).
Carr, who is scheduled to earn his bachelor's degree this May in health and wellness, signed a pro contract and is playing with the  Peoria Rivermen of the Southern Professional Hockey League.
Todd Nowicki was Buffalo State’s only other All-American when he earned second team honors in 2001-02 after scoring 23 goals and 46 points.
