Hobey Baker Award finalists named: Nyquist misses the cut

The Hobey Baker Memorial Award’s finalists were named today, and a former Wings prospect camper made the cut, but now-Red Wings prospect Gustav Nyquist did not:

The Hobey Baker Memorial Award Foundation on Wednesday announced the three Hobey Hat Trick finalists for the 2011 Hobey Baker Memorial Award, honoring college hockey’s top player.  Alphabetically, they are: Cam Atkinson, junior forward from Boston College; Matt Frattin, senior forward from the Univ. of North Dakota; and Andy Miele, senior forward from Miami Univ. of Ohio.

The three finalists were selected from the initial list of Top Ten candidates by the 23-member Selection Committee and an additional round of online fan balloting to determine this year’s Hobey Baker winner.  Criteria for the award includes: strength of character on and off the ice, displaying outstanding skills in all phases of the game, sportsmanship and scholastic achievements.

This year’s Hobey Baker Award winner will be announced Friday, April 8, 2011 from the Xcel Energy Center in Saint Paul, MN during the NCAA Frozen Four.  The 31st annual announcement will be aired live on ESPNU at 6:00 p.m., CT.

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
