CALGARY -- Johnny Gaudreau's home in Carneys Point, N.J., is littered with hardware.
The 20-year-old Calgary Flames prospect is looking to add one more to the mantle, an ESPY. But as the award nominations and accolades continue to pile up, so too does the expectation that Gaudreau can take the next step and jump into the NHL.
Gaudreau, the reigning Hobey Baker Award winner, is among the finalists for the ESPN honor of top male college athlete.
"It's exciting," he said Saturday following the Flames' first on-ice session at their annual development camp. "I'm up there against four pretty talented athletes. It's great to be recognized, and I'm going to be excited to get out there and meet the other guys."
