There will be a conference call to discuss Hobey Baker Award candidates this season.
But let’s be honest. At this point, it’s only a formality.
I don’t recall a Hobey race that will have such little drama as this year’s. Even if he doesn’t tab another point this season, Boston College forward Johnny Gaudreau could win the Hobey.
After leading the Eagles to another Beanpot title on Monday night, Gaudreau has 58 points in 29 games this season. How absurd is that? Gaudreau already has five more points than anyone tallied in the nation last season.
On a historical note, Gaudreau has a shot at being the first college hockey player to tally two points per game for a season since New Hampshire’s Jason Krog in 1998-99. Krog won the Hobey that year.
However, back in 1998-99, scoring in college hockey was significantly higher than it is these days, which makes Gaudreau’s season even more impressive.
