The BC Interruption year end awards continue to roll on today with the Most Improved Male Athlete Award going to hockey’s Marc McLaughlin.

McLaughlin double his totals across the board in his third season with BC, going from five goals, seven assists, and 12 points as a sophomore to 10-14-24 totals in his junior campaign. His 24 points were good for second on the team and were good for a point a game pace and McLaughlin’s defensive game was also recognized when he was named the best defensive forward in Hockey East at the end of the season.

McLaughlin also tied for the most shorthanded goals in the nation with three, chipped in a pair of powerplay goals, and served as a captain during his junior season. Since starting his career at BC, McLaughlin has developed from a solid if unspectacular fourth liner into a foundational part of the forward group and one of the more reliable two-way forwards in the country. It will be exciting to see what kind of steps he can take to continue improving his game in his senior season.

McLaughlin beat out a competitive field to be named the most improved male athlete this season. He edged out two of his teammates in Casey Carreau and Drew Helleson, basketball’s CJ Felder, and football’s Zay Flowers. Congrats to Marc on a well deserved award after his excellent junior season.
