Longo, Brennan earn USCHO accolades

Hobart College seniors Keith Longo and Andy Brennan were recently honored by U.S. College Hockey Online (USCHO) after guiding the Statesmen to a program-record 21-7-2 record and an appearance in the NCAA Tournament semifinals. Longo was named to the USCHO East All-Star First Team, while Brennan was tabbed East Second Team.
One of the top goaltenders in the nation, Longo is a two-time All-American, the only Statesman to earn the honor twice, and a two-time first team All-ECAC West pick. He holds every Hobart season and career record for the position, including the single season marks for saves (876), wins (18), goals against average (2.08), save percentage (.939), and shutouts (3). For his career, Longo holds the benchmarks for wins (51), saves (2,636), save percentage (.930), goals against average (2.30), and shutouts (8).
Longo’s career save percentage is an NCAA Division III record. He also ranks fourth in career shutouts, ninth in career goals against average, 14th in career saves, and 22nd in career wins. Longo will be in action on April 10 at the NCAA Frozen Four Skills Challenge in Washington, D.C. He is the only Division III student-athlete on the men’s roster.

A defenseman, Brennan served as a co-captain this season. He led a unit that squashed nearly 85 percent of its opponents’ power-play opportunities and ranked second in the ECAC West in scoring defense (2.27 goals allowed per game). In the NCAA Tournament, those numbers improved. In three games, the Hobart defense allowed just one even strength goal, posted a 0.94 goals against average, and killed off 94.7 percent of its opponent’s power-play opportunities.

Brennan was named an RBK Hockey Second Team East All-American this winter, and earned first team All-ECAC West accolades. He wrapped his career after playing in 105 games, and tallying 12 goals and 51 helpers, including two goals and 13 assists this season.

Longo, Brennan, and fellow seniors Ryan Adler, Kirk Golden, Jason Merritt, Bryant Harris, and Michael Steiner, led the Statesmen to a four-year record of 72-31-9. No graduating class has produced more wins or had a higher winning percentage (.683) in Hobart history. They made three trips to the NCAA Tournament, advancing to the semifinals in 2006 and 2009.
