I admit, I had no idea who Hobey Baker was, much less that he was a local guy and a standout in both hockey and football at Princeton. And he was a fighter pilot in WWI. He died in a crash during a test flight in France.

I didn't know he was from Philly but I knew most of the other stuff.

The Hobey Baker award ceremony will be in Philly this year. Wouldn't it be something if Ghost wins in the city that drafted him!

He won't. He's not one of the three finalists.

@JackStraw  Saw Gaudreau play one game this year, quite the skill set, outstanding skater. I have not seen the other 2 play, but if they beat out Johnny, they deserve it, cause that kid really impressed me.

Yeah, Gaudreau is good. I remember him in the WJC and he stood out with his skill. I haven't seen the other two either.

Thanks, Jack. I didn't know they narrowed it down to 3 finalists. I thought it was 5 or 6.

Johnny Gaudreau is from South Jersey so it will be a home town boy (if he wins). That will be something special for him and his family.

Not going to be that special after losing to Union today.  :ph34r:

 

He will win it, but what a special night it would be to win the championship and the HB on the same day.

Well the good thing is it almost seems to be a curse winning it you have to go all the way the back to Carle(06) to find someone who won it and actually did something at the next level....after that Ryan Miller(01).
