LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- St. Norbert College senior forward Johan Ryd led the Green Knights' three All-America selections with a first-team nod on the Division II-III CCM American Hockey Coaches Association All-America Team.

Ryd's honor was his second AHCA All-America nod, coming a year after being a second-team honoree. Sophomore defenseman Reid Campbell and freshman goaltender David Jacobson picked up their first All-America honors with both being selected to the second team.

Entering Friday's NCAA Division III Frozen Four semifinal game against Norwich, Ryd has a team-high 38 points coming on 15 goals and 23 assists. He has 96 career points in 88 games, scoring 37 goals and 59 assists.

Campbell enters the weekend with four goals and eight assists for 12 points in 29 games.

Jacobson, the only freshman to be named to the East or West All-America squads, heads into the Frozen Four with a 17-2-3 record, 1.58 goals against average and .933 save percentage. He is the first freshman goaltender to start a Frozen Four game for St. Norbert.

St. Norbert now has 24 hockey first-team All-America selections, and has had at least one for 15 consecutive years.
