Six Tar Heels Named Preseason All-Americas
Release: 01/10/2017

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - The men's Division I All-Americans from the 2017 Face-Off Yearbook have been unveiled online.  Six Tar Heels are featured on the preseason All-America Teams led by senior defenseman Austin Pifani on the first-team squad.

Pifani is joined by a fellow close defenseman, sophomore Jack Rowlett, on the second team squad.  A pair of Tar Heels are featured on the third team squad – senior attackman Luke Goldstock and senior face-off man Stephen Kelly.

Two more members of head coach Joe Breschi’s team were tapped for honorable mention All-America honors.  Junior attackman Chris Cloutier and senior midfielder Michael Tagliaferri are featured on that squad.

North Carolina is coming off a 12-6 season in 2016 in which the Tar Heels won their fifth overall NCAA championship and its first title since 1991.
