Wisconsin Badger junior defenseman Justin Schultz is a two-time All-American after the American Hockey Coaches Association
(AHCA) announced the teams on Friday.
The 2012 AHCA First-Team West All-America honor puts Schultz in elite company in Wisconsin hockey history. His selection makes him only the fourth Badger named a two-time First-Team All-American, and the second defenseman. Schultz joins forward Mike Eaves, forward Mark Johnson and defenseman Craig Norwich as the two-time First-Team All-Americans. Forward Tony Granato was a two-time Second-Team All-American, while forward Dany Heatley earned first-team honors in 2001 and second-team accolades in 2000.
A 2008 second round NHL draft pick of the Anaheim Ducks (43rd overall), Schultz led all national blue-liners in scoring for the second consecutive season, boasting a 1.19 points per game scoring average.
For his career, Schultz has 40 goals, 73 assists and 1113 points, including 21 power-play goals and five game-winning scores. Schultz has also collected 28 multi-point games across three years with the Badgers.
