PHOTO: Drew LeBlanc's Hobey Baker Award decorated for the holidays
Drew LeBlanc won the Hobey Baker Award last season as college hockey's MVP last season. His mother decided to decorate the hallowed trophy for the holidays.
The Hobey Baker Memorial Award is college hockey’s highest individual honor. Not unlike the Heisman Trophy, the Hobey is one of those incredibly rare honors in sports that is so revered by fans and players alike.
Drew LeBlanc won the Hobey Baker last season after putting up 50 points as a senior at St. Cloud State University. He soon signed a deal with the Chicago Blackhawks as an unrestricted free agent and now plays for their AHL affiliate, the Rockford IceHogs.
So where does LeBlanc keep his most prized possession? Like any good son, with his mother.
Like many this holiday season, LeBlanc’s mom likes to deck the halls something fierce. That meant Hobey was in need of a Christmas makeover.
Clad with a tiny sweater and knit cap, the most prized individual award in all of college hockey is ready for some carols, egg nog and staying warm by the fire.
LeBlanc, who appeared in two games with the Blackhawks last season after wrapping up his collegiate career has 11 points for the IceHogs in 24 games this year.
