Boston College's Johnny Gaudreau wins Hobey Baker Award as top Division I hockey player

PHILADELPHIA - Boston College forward Johnny Gaudreau won the Hobey Baker Award on Friday night as the top Division I college hockey player.

Gaudreau, from Carney's Point, N.J., won the award a day after Boston College lost to Union in the NCAA semifinals. He's expected to pass up his senior season to sign with the NHL's Calgary Flames.

The 5-foot-7, 150-pound forward led the nation with 36 goals and 44 assists. He's the first player to reach 80 points since Colorado College's Peter Sejna had 82 in 2002-03.

St. Lawrence's Greg Carey and St. Cloud State's Nic Dowd were the other finalists.

Union will play Minnesota in the championship game Saturday night.

Quote of the Day

For us it's a little bit different. I've never been in front of this much media. This is more than we've ever had to deal with in Tampa. I guess we're on a little bit bigger stage now. It's nice, you have to enjoy it. This doesn't happen too often.
