OXFORD, Ohio - In honor of Miami's 32nd and final year in the CCHA, Miami Hockey is giving fans the opportunity to select Miami's All-Time CCHA Team. With Miami's All-1980s CCHA Team already selected, voting is now open for fans to choose Miami's All-1990s CCHA Team.
Voting for the All-1990s Team will run through Sunday, Nov. 18 with Miami's All-1990s CCHA Team being revealed on Tuesday, Nov. 20. Fans will select a team for each decade Miami was a member of the CCHA, starting with the 1980s (1981-89), which already took place. Miami's All-1980s CCHA Team can be seen here. A 2000-2013 team will also be chosen in the coming months with both a first team and second team being announced for each decade team. From each of the three all-decade teams, fans will then vote on Miami's All-Time CCHA Team (both a first and second team).
Because both a first and second team will be announced, six forwards, four defensemen and two goaltenders should be selected from the ballot. One ballot per email address, please. Fans can vote for the 1990s team here. The first team will be the top three vote-getters at forward, the two defensemen who receive the most votes and the top goaltender. The second team will be the next three vote-getters at forward, the third and fourth defensemen to get the most votes and the second goaltender.
Players listed on the ballot played at least one year in the CCHA and were chosen for the ballot based on fitting one of the following categories: award winner, team captain, annual statistical leader or member of the 100-point club. If a player played in two decades, they will be eligible for the decade in which they played the majority of their career.
Following the 1990s team voting, the 2000s team ballot will be available beginning Tuesday, Nov. 27. Below is a complete schedule of voting for Miami's All-Time CCHA Team (subject to change), culminating with Miami's All-Time CCHA Team being revealed throughout the month of February.
