Classroom

Economics major Mason Bergh has demonstrated excellence in the classroom holding a 3.84 grade-point average. In each of his three seasons, Bergh was named to the American Hockey Coaches Association’s All-American Scholar Team and earned Distinguished Scholar Athlete honors by the National Collegiate Hockey Conference. He has been named to the dean’s list at Colorado College in each of his six semesters at the school, and last season he won the Paul Markovich Award, which is given to the top student-athlete in the CC hockey program.

Character

In the 80-year history of Colorado College hockey, Bergh is one of only a few who have served as team captains for two seasons. Toward the end of his sophomore season, he became the vocal and on-ice leader of the team and was rewarded by the coaching staff with the “C” last season as a junior. He helped the Tigers achieve their best record in five years and was a clear choice to continue that honor this season as a senior. Following the 2017-18 campaign, he was named the recipient of the prestigious Scott Winkler Award, which honors the player who earns the respect of his teammates by showing humility, optimism and support through his love and appreciation for the game and his teammates.

Community

Bergh has been very active with community service efforts at the school and in the Colorado Springs area. One of his ventures is supporting the local Children’s Hospital. Not only does he visit children at the hospital each season, but he also volunteered at the 2018 Children’s Hospital Colorado Climb For Courage, which raised money to build Southern Colorado’s only comprehensive children’s hospital. In addition, he volunteers with Colorado College’s Student Athlete Advisory Committee to raise donations for various charities and works Parent’s Night Out, in which parents can bring their children to the school for five hours and the CC athletes will play and take care of them while the parents enjoy an evening to themselves.

Competition

On the ice, Bergh has consistently been one of the best players in the program throughout his three seasons so far. He led the team with 24 points as a sophomore, then increased his point production to 40 points last season as a junior. He centered one of the best lines in the country last season, producing 116 points with linemates Nick Halloran and Trey Bradley. Bergh earned honorable mention All-NCHC honors by the league last season after tying for third in the league with eight power-play goals and fifth with 18 goals. He is CC’s career active scoring leader with 79 points (36g, 43a) in 112 career games.
