In what seems like an annual occurence, ECAC coaches and media have tabbed Harvard senior defenseman Alex Biega for their preseason all-conference teams.
Biega, a two-time selection to the All-ECAC Hockey third team, received his fourth and fifth preseason all-conference honors. It was his third straight selection to the media's all-league squad and his second straight to the coaches' team. He led Harvard with 16 assists last season and placed second on the squad with 20 points. Biega was also a key part of ECAC Hockey's top power play in league games (19.2 percent). The Crimson captain was one of four players named preseason all-league by both the ECAC coaches and media. Princeton goaltender Zane Kalemba, Colgate forward David McIntyre and Cornell forward Riley Nash were picked to both teams. Dartmouth's Evan Stephens was the other defenseman on the coaches' team, while Cornell's Brendon Nash made the media's squad. The coaches chose Yale forward Sean Backman to their preseason team, while the media selected his teammate, Mark Arcobello.
