For the first time ever, Hobey is going to St. Cloud State.
On Friday, St. Cloud senior forward Drew LeBlanc won the 2013 Hobey Baker trophy as the top player in collegiate hockey. The win marks the first time a Huskies player has ever won the award.
LeBlanc, 23, was the WCHA’s Player and Student Athlete of the Year in 2013, leading the Huskies to their first-ever Frozen Four appearance.
He led the country with 37 assists this year and finished seventh in the nation in points, with 50.
LeBlanc beat out Boston College’s Johnny Gaudreau and Quinnipiac’s Eric Hartzell for the award, and becomes the 16th player from the WCHA to capture the Hobey.
Yesterday, LeBlanc’s St. Cloud team lost to Quinnipiac in the Frozen Four semifinals. Quinnipiac will face Yale in the final on Saturday at Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh.
