Alon Eizenman
has been elected into the American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA) Hall-of-Fame as the lone member of the Class of 2012.  The induction ceremony will be held Saturday, April 28, during the Annual Meeting General Session at the Naples Beach Hotel and Golf Club. The Hall-of-Fame celebration is co-sponsored by USA Hockey.

 

Alon is the 9th member inducted into the ACHA Hall-of-Fame, the 3rd in the Players category, joining fellow player inductees Jesse Hubenschmidt (2008) and Will McMahon (2010).  Alon becomes the 3rd inductee from Penn State University, joining Builders Joe Battista (2008) and Josh Brandwene (2009).  The other four members of the ACHA Hall-of-Fame are in the Builders category: Tom Keegan (2007), Don Spencer (2007), Doug Waack (2010), and Craig McCarthy (2011).

 

As a center for Penn State University from 1997 to 2001, Alon scored 95 goals and 164 assists for a total of 259 points in 126 games.  He guided Penn State to four consecutive ACHA Men’s Division 1 National Championship Games, where the Nittany Lions were victorious three times (1998, 2000, and 2001).  Alon was named the ACHA Men’s Division 1 Player-of-the-Year in 2000, the same year he won the prestigious Bob Johnson Award.  The Bob Johnson Award was awarded annually from 1993-2004 and was given to the player that best demonstrated hockey ability and achievement, leadership, sportsmanship and enthusiasm, as well as academic and community service accomplishments. 

 

Alon was Penn State’s first four-time ACHA Men’s Division 1 All-American (1st team twice, 2nd team, and Honorable Mention) and was an Academic All-American during both of his eligible years (1999-2000 and 2000-2001).  During Alon’s final 3 seasons, he was a member of the Men’s Division 1 National Championships All-Tournament Team, twice being named Tournament Most Valuable Player (back-to-back in 2000 and 2001).  During the 2000 ACHA Men’s Division 1 National Championships in Minot, North Dakota, Alon netted the National Championship-winning goal in overtime.

 

Alon represented Israel in international hockey, leading Israel to a gold medal at the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) Group D World Championships in 2000, and skating on a line with his brothers Erez and Oren while winning another gold medal at the IIHF Division II World Championships in 2005.

 

After graduating with honors and distinction from Penn State with a B.Sc. in Finance in 2001, Alon attended the Pittsburgh Penguins training camp before playing two seasons with A.S.G. Tours of France’s Elite Professional Hockey League. Alon averaged over a point per game in his two seasons in France, leading Tours to the Magnus Cup Finals in 2005. Alon also spent one season as a scout for the Erie Otters of the Ontario Hockey League.

 

Alon attended the Faculty of Law at the University of Toronto and earned his J.D. in 2007. He was called to the Ontario bar in 2008, and has since practiced municipal and planning law at Stikeman Elliott LLP, one of Canada’s largest and most prestigious law firms.

 

Alon lives in Toronto, ON with his wife Erin; they have a 2-year old daughter named Sophie.
