The Bantams bounced Wesleyan 9-1 in the NESCAC quarterfinals but lost to Bowdoin in the semifinals. Trinity junior forward Jackson Brewer was named the 2014 Joe Concannon Award recipient as the best American-born college hockey player in New England competing at the Division II/III level and as the NESCAC Men’s Ice Hockey Player of the Year, while first-year forward Ryan Cole was honored as the NESCAC Rookie of the Year. Brewer also was named to the American Hockey Coaches Association (AHCA)/CCM Division II/III All-American East First Team, while junior captain defenseman Michael Flynn and sophomore forward Michael Hawkrigg graced the AHCA/CCM All-American East Second Team.
