David Pope named to National Collegiate Hockey Conference All-Star Team

From the University of Nebraska-Omaha:

Omaha senior forward David Pope is one of six players named to the National Collegiate Hockey Conference First Team All-Conference.

It is the first all-conference honor for Pope who was the only Maverick recognized for either the first, second or honorable mention teams.

Pope is having a career season with 20 goals and 20 assists for 40 points in 33 games.  He ranks fourth in the conference in scoring for all games played.  He finished the season with 14 goals and 14 assists for 28 points in 23 conference games which also put him fourth in the NCHC.

The native of Edmonton, Alberta leads the NCHC with 12 power play goals, a number that ties him for first in the nation.  He also has amassed a conference-best 21 power play points.  Pope was named the NCHC’s Offensive Player of the Week following a five-point weekend in a split at Notre Dame.

Pope became the fifth Maverick in as many years to score 20 goals in a season when he tallied against North Dakota on Feb. 16.  He’s also the 15th player to reach 40 or more points in a season in school history.

The Mavericks begin the NCHC Playoffs with a best-of-three quarterfinal series at North Dakota on March 9.

  1. How does he project? Is he another middling player, or does he have an honest to goodness chance at being a star? He seems old for a prospect, if he has any kind of major setback when he goes into the minors he could easily miss.
