Sophomore defenseman Mike Reilly was named to the first team picked by the national college hockey website, sophomore goaltender Adam Wilcox to the second, and junior forward Kyle Rau to the third.

Reilly was the third-leading scorer for Minnesota with 33 points (nine goals, 24 assists) and was plus-19.

National champion Union led all teams with four players on All-USCHO teams. St. Cloud State forward Nic Dowd was a second-team pick.
