FAIRBANKS, Alaska - Goaltender Anton Martinsson was named to the 2018-2019 Google Cloud Academic All-District Men's at-large team.
This award recognized the Nation's top student athletes, for both their academic and athletic performance. ​
They recognize athletes at four different levels, division 1 through 3 and NAIA. ​
Martinsson was one of ten at-large selections from District 8 at the Division 2 level since the University of Alaska only has one Division 1 team. ​
This is the first academic at-large honor for Martinsson, who will begin his senior season for the Nanooks in the fall.​
The goaltender from Klippan Sweden has earned a 3.64 GPA while studying business administration. ​
He appeared in 25 games for the Nanooks last year, where he finished with a 7-15-2-2 record between the pipes. ​
He stopped 649 out of the 712 shots fired at him, good enough for a 91% save percentage. ​
The WCHA named him goaltender of the week back in November and was the conference's Goalie of the month in February.​
He was the only Men's Hockey player in District 8, and was one of only four Division 1 Hockey players overall. ​
The At-Large district winners will now advance to the Academic All-America Ballot, which will announce their first, second, and third team members in June. ​

The final winner of the Weekly Poll is North Pole's Daniel Crutcher.
With the Monroe Catholic Rams holding a 2-1 lead, Crutcher stepped up for a free kick. ​
He took full advantage, sinking this shot to force a tie against their Mid Alaska Conference foes. ​
That was the closest a MAC team has come to defeating the Rams, who are undefeated in Conference play. ​
Now that we're done with another successful season of the I-5, let's take a look back at some of the best poll winners of the year. ​
