Dean Stewart named to ECHL All-Rookie Team

Former Portage Terriers standout, Dean Stewart has been named to the ECHL’s All-Rookie Team after a strong season on the blueline for the Wichita Thunder.

The All-Rookie Team is determined in a vote of ECHL coaches, broadcasters, media relations directors and media, who were asked to select a goaltender, two defensemen and three forwards.

Dean led rookie blueliners with 35 points and a +21 rating – which is third among all defensemen – and his six goals are fifth among rookie defensemen.

Stewart played 75 MJHL games for the Terriers between 2014-16, where he helped the club to a pair of Turnbull Cup Championships, earned a NCAA Div. 1 scholarship to Nebraska-Omaha and was selected by the Arizona Coyotes in the 7th round of the NHL Draft.
