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

What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
