TEMPE, Ariz. -- The Year of the Sun Devil continues just a little longer.

Everything has come up devilish for the Arizona State hockey team in 2013-2014. ASU spent most of the year ranked No. 1 in the ACHA, and capped the season with the program's first national title. 

After the Murdoch Cup made its way to Tempe, the hardware didn't stop. 

Head coach Greg Powers won the ACHA Coach of the Year award, goaltender and national tournament MVP Robert Levin took home Rookie of the Year honors, and now senior forward Kale Dolinski has completed the hat trick by being named the ACHA Division 1 Player of the Year.

Dolinski is the first ever Sun Devil to win the award.

The Saskatchewan native led the ACHA with 76 points (20 goals) and was a terror for opposing defenses with his ability to be a scorer as well as playmaker for his teammates. Dolinski finished his illustrious ASU career with 176 points (74 goals) over his three seasons after playing for Minot State as a freshman.

Navy forward Thomas Krysil, Iowa State goalie Matthew Cooper, and Davenport defenseman Phil Wendecker were the other finalists.
