Ice Hockey Wiki

The Hobey Baker Award is an annual award given to the top National Collegiate Athletic Association men's ice hockey player. It has been awarded 36 times.

It is named for hockey player and World War I veteran Hobey Baker, who played collegiately at Princeton University and learned the game at St. Paul's School (Concord, New Hampshire).

The original statue for the award was commissioned and awarded by the Decathlon Athletic Club (now defunct) in Bloomington, MN. The model for the award trophy was Steve Christoff, who played for Richfield Minnesota High School, the University of Minnesota, the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team and in the National Hockey League.[1]
