History's Favorite Hobey: Neal Broten
the 25th anniversary of college hockey's highest individual honor,
Inside College Hockey asked for your help to determine History's
Favorite Hobey. Turns out, the selection committee had it right
from the get-go.
half of the more than 1,100 fans voting in our final round picked

of how difficult it is to pick the winner of the Hobey Baker Memorial
Award each season. Even when the field is narrowed to ten –

INCH takes that premise one step further, asking our readers to
pick the best of the best as part of the History’s Favorite
Hobey poll. As the Hobey Baker Award celebrates its 25th year, we
want you to decide which of the two dozen previous winners stands
as the your favorite all-time Hobey winner.
