Jack Eichel wins Hobey Baker Award

-

Boston University standout Jack Eichel is one of the top prospects in all of hockey. Eichel is reminding everyone of that with a brilliant performance in the NCAA Frozen Four.

On Friday, Eichel was honored for his brilliance by receiving the Hobey Baker Award which is given annually to the best college hockey player.

“It was really nice to hear my name,” Eichel told the Boston Globe. “My mom and dad were sitting in the front row. I got choked up for a minute talking, just because I looked down and saw my mom and she was crying. It choked me up for a minute just because of how important my parents are and everything they’ve done for me. I can’t say enough good things about them.”

Eichel became the first freshman to win the award since 1993 (Paul Kariya) and he became the second freshman to ever win the award.

In his most recent outing, Eichel scored two goals and one assist to earn his team a spot in the national championship game. Eichel will return to the ice on Saturday against Providence looking to claim a national title.
