St. Cloud State F LeBlanc wins Hobey Baker Award, after leading nation in assists

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Forward Drew LeBlanc of St. Cloud State has won the Hobey Baker Award, given to the nation's top college hockey player.

LeBlanc, who helped to lead the Huskies to an appearance in the Frozen Four, becomes the first member of the St. Cloud State program to ever win the coveted award.

LeBlanc, a fifth-year senior centre, led the nation with 37 assists in 42 games. He scored 13 goals, and finished with 50 points, good for seventh in the nation. He was a two-year captain for the Huskies, who lost to Quinnipiac, 4-1, Thursday in the national semifinals here.

He is a native of Hermantown, Minn., and was named first team all-conference in the WCHA this season.

Quote of the Day

I mean, any of those 14 teams (in the lottery) it would have been an absolute honor. If I am selected by Edmonton it will be amazing, a dream come true. They have a lot of amazing young players there.
