St. Paul, MN- The New Hampshire Monarchs and the Eastern Junior Hockey League congratulates alumni Paul Thompson and Brian Dumoulin, both formerly of the New Hampshire Jr. Monarchs, for being among those selected to the Reebok All-American Teams, as selected by the American Hockey Coaches Association.
Thompson, a Hobey Baker finalist from University of New Hampshire, adds this award to an already-lengthy list of honors achieved this past season. He also has the Hockey East Player of the Year, First-Team All-Star, Three Stars Award, and Scoring Champion to show for his spectacular senior year. He was also recently named New England Player of the Year. While with the Monarchs, he set the single-season scoring record in 2007 with 83 points, led the Monarchs to the 2007 EJHL Dineen Cup Championship, and was named the league’s Most Valuable Player. Thompson recently signed a two-year contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Dumoulin, a sophomore at Boston College, played for the Monarchs during the 2008-09 season and was named the EJHL’s Defensive Player of the Year. As a freshman, he and his Boston College teammates won the NCAA championship. This past season, he was named to the All-Hockey East First Team and won the league’s Best Defensive Defenseman award. He also played for Team USA in the IIHF World Junior Championships, winning the bronze medal.
