Best University of Denver Athlete (2001)
DU Pioneers Hockey
The University of Denver Pioneers had a mediocre season, but sophomore goaltender Wade Dubielewicz is widely regarded as a potential All-American. In his first 27 games this year, he gave up just 2.19 goals per game -- sixth in the nation and first among goalies in the tough Western Collegiate Hockey Association. The Invermere, British Columbia, native is just 5'10" and 178 pounds, but his incredible quickness and great glove hand make him impenetrable. If the moneybags of the NHL don't come calling too soon, he might lead the Pioneers back to the heights.
