No surprise that Keven Porter won the Hobey – he’s been the top choice for most of the season. But it would have been hard to fault the pick of the other two finalists. I can make a case for either Gerbe or Jones, as can most college hockey fans.
The choice of Will Bruce as the recipient of the Hockey Humanitarian must also have been a tough choice for the committee. The finalists all had wonderful credentials and the kids associated with this award continue to amaze me year in and year out in how they manage to balance a college workload, playing a demanding sport, and still have the time to selflessly devote themselves to helping others.
