Connor Hellebuyck leads UMass-Lowell past UNH

MANCHESTER, N.H. — Connor Hellebuyck deflected praise as deftly as he did the 28 pucks he stopped for the UMass-Lowell’s Frozen Four-bound hockey team in Saturday night’s 2-0 shutout over New Hampshire in the NCAA Northeast Regional final.

Still, the 6-foot-4-inch, 200-pound freshman goaltender from Commerce, Mich., who was unanimously voted the most outstanding player of the regional, was having none of it when it was suggested he was the big reason the River Hawks (28-10-2) defeated UNH for the first time in four chances this season.
