Go-To Guys: The Hobey Baker Award
With the regular
season winding down, the spotlight shines on the nation's top players.
A few have stood out to this point in the race for the Hobey, but
as we've seen in the past, a lot can change over the final few weeks
(see Reinprecht, Steve). There is no shortage of candidates in this
year's field, and we evaluate where they stand in this week's edition
of Go-To Guys.
Want to make
a case for somebody we left out? Let
us know and we'll share your thoughts.
Hockey editors and staff, in consultation with coaches and media
from around the country, compiled this list of how we would vote
today – not necessarily how we think the race will turn out.
And stay tuned, because a lot can change each weekend.

is sad when you can't argue with someone's choices. I approve of
your ratings in the race.
Liles was by far the best player on the ice during the MSU/UM
weekend. By definition of the award, John should be considered.
He is way
more important and impactful to his team than say Parise. No knocks,
