Every week this season, Eye on Hockey will be tracking the best players in college hockey as they compete for the ultimate individual prize, the Hobey Baker Memorial Award.
Just when it seemed like the Hobey picture was beginning to clear, more players seem to keep making a case for consideration. Though that may be the case, this week's Hobey Watch has mostly familiar faces.
Johnny Gaudreau returned to the top spot after his three points in his return to Boston College from the World Juniors. Ryan Walters got bumped to No. 2 this week, while Kevin Goumas makes his return after helping UNH knock off BC last weekend. Corban Knight, who extended his point streak to 17 games at North Dakota, comes in at No. 4.
Among those to watch closely this week that didn't make the top four is Montreal Canadiens prospect Danny Kristo. The senior forward has been going off of late and has a big series in his home state against the University of Minnesota.
As a side note, the Hobey Baker Memorial Award first phase of fan voting is underway on the award's official site. You can vote for your favorite candidates here.
