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

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
