Becoming the Owls' career leader in goals (169) and points (253) this season, he is one of the nation's top offensive threats, ranked third in goals both per game (3.81) and points per game (5.38).  A prolific scorer, Meehan had multiple goals in 14 of the Owls' 17 games this season.

Meehan also handed out five helpers against Wheaton (Mass.) to match his previous career best.

            A second-team selection, Jette, a sophomore, played alongside Meehan on KSC's front-line this past season finishing with 35goals, 26 assists for 61 points. He netted a career-high six goals against Southern Maine and found the back of the net five times vs. New England College last spring.

           Finishing its season with a fine 14-3 record, the Owls captured the Little East championship and earned a berth in the NCAA tournament.
