Kristo, Knight both Hobey finalists

UND seniors Danny Kristo and Corban Knight are both finalists for the Hobey Baker Award.

The top 10 finalists were announced this afternoon, and for the third time in program history, two UND players are among the top 10 in the same season.

Kristo and Knight both rank in the top seven nationally in scoring and both are alternate captains of the team.

The list will be narrowed to a top three on April 4 and the winner will be announced April 12 in Pittsburgh.

Notable items: There are no defensemen on the list. There’s only one CCHA player on the list. And for the first time in program history, there are two St. Lawrence players on the list.

  1. Tough to choose from that list (all amazing players). Ironically, the one who probably meant the most to his team this year was the Niagra goaltender. They will make an extremely quick exit though, so I’d bet on either of the two magnificent Sioux (or Johnny G)….. :-)
