The No. 11 Michigan hockey team had five players collect postseason honors on Tuesday.

Junior forward Cooper Marody was named first-team All-Big Ten after leading the league in scoring. He finished the regular season with 46 points, 14 of them goals and 32 assists. He is the third Michigan player to be the Big Ten scoring champion, joining Zach Hyman (2015) and Kyle Connor (2016).

He had the ninth most points in the NCAA and the third most assists nationwide.

Senior forward Tony Calderone and freshman defenseman Quinn Hughes both were named to the All-Big Ten second team.

Calderone led Michigan and the Big Ten in goals, with 23 — which ranks eighth in the country. He tallied 40 points total, the most ever by a Michigan captain.

Hughes recorded four goals and 24 assists to finish as the team's third-leading scorer. He also was named to the All-Freshman team.

His 24 assists are the most all-time by a Michigan freshman and his 28 points are third. He finished the regular season third in the NCAA in assists.

Sophomore goaltender Hayden Lavigne was awarded an honorable mention. He missed out on Goaltender of the Year, which was given to Notre Dame sophomore Cale Morris, who also won Big Ten Player of the Year over Marody.

This season, Lavigne played in 30 games, starting 28, and finished with a 16-10-3 record. He had a save percentage of .910 and had a goals against average of 2.79. He had three shutouts this year as well.

Senior defenseman Sam Piazza was named Michigan's Big Ten Sportsmanship Award Honoree. It's the second straight year he's won the award. According to MGoBlue.com, Piazza set a career high in games played (35), assists (13), points (15) and shots (64) this season.

Piazza was also nominated as a finalist for the Senior CLASS award. This award recognizes student-athletes who excel both on and off the ice.

Ohio State coach Steve Rohlik was named Big Ten Coach of the Year over Michigan's Mel Pearson. OSU was picked to finish fifth in the Big Ten this season and came in second, while Michigan was picked to finish sixth and came in third in the conference.
