McAuliffe cleans up at EMHA awards

Joe McAuliffe of the Flint Jr. Generals was the big winner last weekend at the Eastern Michigan Hockey Association awards ceremony.

McAuliffe recieved the "Gale Cronk Award" as junior player of the year, was one of six $1000 Bob Landall Academic Scholarship honorees and also won the EMHA Academic Award for overall academic excellence (3.7 grade-point average at Goodrich High School) for the fifth time.

McAuliffe, a 17-year-old (turns 18 July 6) forward from Goodrich, put up eight goals, including three game-winners, and 14 points in 45 games last season for Flint.

"Joe is one of those hard-working players that never gives up," said Flint GM Kelly Cronk.
