Birmingham Brother Rice senior Mackenzie MacEachern took home the Mr. Hockey award at Sunday's All-State Awards Luncheon in Livonia.
In doing so, he became the fourth Brother Rice player to win the award, the first since Dale Rominski and Mike Jalaba won it back to back in 1994-95.
He's also the 12th player from the Michigan Interscholastic Hockey League to win the award in that time, the first since Cranbrook's Andrew Miller won it back in 2007. He was co-MVP of the league for the second-straight season.
MacEachern finished the season with 42 goals, 90 points and a plus-minus of +50 in 29 games, helping to lead the Warriors to the Division 2 state championship.
He was also chosen for the state Dream Team, along with teammate Chris Wilberding. Calumet forward Levi Erkkila and defenseman Ben Storm both made the team, as did Brighton forward Tommy Kivisto and Trenton goalie Blake Wojtala.
To be eligible for the team, a player must have been voted among the top three forwards, top two defensemen and top goalie to his Division's all-state team, which was announced earlier this week.
Along with announcing the winner of the Mr. Hockey award and the Dream Team, all the All-State players were honored. Oakland County had 46 selected in the three divisions, including 21 first-team all-state selections.
