Brown a Hobey Baker finalist
2008 Rosemount graduate JT Brown is a finalist for the Hobey Baker Award.
The award is given annually to a college hockey player who exhibits strength of character, displays outstanding skills in all phases of the game and outstanding scholastic achievement and sportsmanship.
Every head hockey coach at an accredited Division I NCAA school receives one ballot. Coaches are asked to pick the top three players in their league and the top three players in the nation.
Coaches from 58 schools receive a ballot. Those ballots, along with Vote for Hobey's Preliminary online voting results (you can vote here), are tabulated to determine the 10 finalists.
These top ten advance to the Selection Committee, which decides the eventual winner. This committee is composed of print media, electronic media, NHL scouts, and the American Hockey Coaches Association.
Brown and fellow former Irish player Luke McManus are part of a defending national champion Bulldog team that has a record of 15-4-3 and is once again ranked No. 1 in the nation. Brown is tied for second on the team with 30 points (11 goals and 19 assists). His first career hat trick helped the Bulldogs extend their unbeaten streak to 17 games and take over first place in the WCHA?with a 6-2 win at Nebraska-Omaha Friday.
