Jack Connolly, Minnesota Duluth's standout senior, was awarded the Hobey Baker Award as the best player in college hockey this season. It's deserving — and I say that as a former Hobey voter.
Connolly finished second in the nation in scoring this season with 20 goals and 40 assists in 41 games this season. That capped a fantastic career in which he was just three points shy of 200. He had 66 goals and 131 assists and never missed a game, playing in 166.
Any MSU fan who saw him knew how talented he was. For his career he had 7 goals and 15 assists for 22 points in 14 games against the Mavericks.
