WAKEFIELD, MA – On top of being named a finalist for the Hobey Baker Award for the best men’s college hockey player, Jeremy Swayman was named Hockey East goaltender of the year.
Maine is in the running for the hockey program’s first Hobey Baker Award winner since Scott Pellerin and Paul Kariya won it consecutively in 1992 and 1993.
In addition to recognition as the conference’s best goalie, Swayman was the only unanimous all-conference first team selection. Senior captain Mitch Fossier earned a place on the all-conference second team after a career best in total points.
Fans can vote for their choice for the Hobey Baker Award on the award’s website, through March 29. The top three finalists, known as “The Hobey Hat Trick,” will be announced on April 2, with the winner being announced live on the NHL Network on April 10.
