Johnny Malandruccolo continues to rack up the accolades.

Malandruccolo, a senior forward for Auburn, has been named the NYSPHSAA Division II Player of the Year, capping off a stellar season that featured a handful of scoring records.

Joining Malandruccolo on the all-state team was Skaneateles' Bauer Morrissey, a first-team defenseman, and Jack Henry, a defensive honorable mention.

Malandruccolo was on another level offensively in 2018-19, leading all Section III scorers with 37 goals and 55 points during the regular season. He added five more goals and an assist in two sectional games, including a hat trick against eventual state champion Skaneateles in the Section III semifinals. He finishes his career with 129 goals and 234 points, both of which are program records.

This season, Malandruccolo also became only the second player in Auburn hockey history to record 100 career goals, reaching the mark in a win over Whitesboro.

Morrissey, a junior, was a crucial cog in Skaneateles' 17-1-2 regular season and trip to the state championship. During the regular season, Morrissey scored 7 goals and 22 assists, highlighted by a hat trick against New Hartford on Jan. 17. He added 10 more points, including nine assists, in five postseason games. 

Morrissey finished second among all Section III, Division II defenders in scoring during the regular season.
