Ehn was a 2005 College Hockey American all-rookie
selection and was named to the All-CHA second
team last year.
Key Statistics: Ehn has
stepped up his game nicely over two seasons at the Academy.
He posted nine goals and 13 assists as a freshman and
followed that with a sophomore season featuring 14 goals
and 21 assists as a top-line center. Among Atlantic
Hockey veterans, Ehn ranks fourth in career points (57)
for all rising juniors, trailing only Ben Cottreau of
Mercyhurst (85), Alex Parent of Sacred Heart (63) and
Dale Reinhardt of Holy Cross (58).
What He Does: Ehn has good instincts,
good hands and sees the ice well. He is not a speed-burner
but he confounds defensemen with his east-west skating
style and ability to shift speeds. He brings a high-level
of skill to the offensive end, something the Air Force
program has not seen a great deal of in recent seasons,
coach Frank Serratore said. There’s hardly a game
where Ehn doesn’t find his way onto the score
The Bigger Picture: Serratore
always felt Ehn would become a collegiate all-star;
he just had no idea it would come so soon. Ehn said
there is pressure that comes with his all-star status
but he says he is ready to prove himself once again.
If there’s any knock on his game, Ehn said he
would like to have fewer “off nights” and
be prepared to perform what is asked of him. Ehn will
continue to anchor one of the Falcons’ top lines,
and is being counted on to become an active leader in
the Air Force locker room.
Air Force head coach Frank Serratore
on Ehn: “He’s a real intellectual
kind, a deep thinker. He is a very bright guy. When
you talk to him about situations, he is always thinking
about why we do this breakout tendency versus this team.
With most guys you say, ‘Here’s what we’re
doing,’ and they just do it. He thinks about it.
If he doesn’t agree he will come to you and talk
about it and say, ‘I see it this way.’ He
could coach someday. He doesn’t just play the
game, he thinks the game.’’
