Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) senior goaltender Aaron Crandall was not picked as one of five finalists for the inaugural Mike Richter Award, it was announced on Wednesday afternoon.

The Mike Richter Award will be given out each year to the top senior goaltender in NCAA Division I men's hockey but, similar to the Hobey Baker Award, it will also take into account off-the-ice criteria.

Crandall enjoyed his best season as a Bulldogs in 2013-14, posting a (14-12-3) record with a 2.76 goals against average and a .900 saves percentage.

The five finalists for the first-ever award, which will be handed out during the 2014 NCAA Frozen Four, are Denver's Sam Brittain, UMass-Lowell's Connor Hellebuyck, Wisconsin's Joel Rumpel, Minnesota's Adam Wilcox, and Northeastern's Clay Witt.
