Top performers of the 2014-15 Cyclone Hockey season

Cyclone Hockey finished its season with a quarterfinal loss to eventual national champion Central Oklahoma. But as the team looks back on the 44-game season, it has some positives — namely its top performers.

Here are some of those top performers of the 2014-15 Cyclone Hockey season:

Antti Helanto, defenseman: Helanto led the team with 32 points, 26 of them coming from assists. The team-leading stats mixed with his sound defenseman play led Cyclone Hockey head coach Jason Fairman to call him the team’s “MVP” without hesitation.

Zack Johnson, forward: Cyclone Hockey fans have a lot to be excited about with Johnson, who was second on the team in goals with 13 before he was sidelined Jan. 31 for the rest of the season with an upper-body injury. As a freshman, Johnson impressed the Cyclone coaching staff with 22 points and .67 points per game average.

Matt Cooper, goaltender: It would be hard to talk about the Cyclones’ season without bringing up Cooper. He continued his impressive résumé as the best goaltender in the ACHA with a 2.04 goals against average and a 92.9 save percentage in 25 games.
