Gaudette, a junior, set a career-high for points in a season with 60, leading the nation in scoring. He tallied 30 goals and 30 assists in 38 games this season. The high-flying year brought his career totals at Northeastern to 142 points (68 goals, 74 assists) in 116 games, for an average of 1.22 points per game. Gaudette, a Braintree, Mass. native, also posted a career-best +12 on the season. 

Gaudette helped lead the Huskies to their first Beanpot win in 30 years, topping Boston University 5-2 in the title game on Feb. 12. The Huskies also reached the NCAA tournament with an at-large bid before falling to Michigan in the first round. Gaudette was named Beanpot MVP, finished the year as the Hockey East scoring champion and won two Hockey East Player of the Month awards.

Hobey Baker was the legendary Princeton (1914) hockey player known as America’s greatest amateur athlete 100 years ago. He redefined how the game was played with his coast-to-coast dashes in an era when hockey was contested with seven players and no forward passes. Baker, a member of the U.S. Army’s Air Corp, died testing a repaired aircraft at the end of World War I after he had completed his military service. The Hobey Baker Award criteria includes: displaying outstanding skills in all phases of the game, strength of character on and off the ice, sportsmanship and scholastic achievements. Gaudette was selected from a group of 10 finalists by a 27-member selection committee and online fan balloting. 

Since the end of the season, Gaudette, a fifth-round draft pick of the Vancouver Canucks in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, has appeared in four NHL games with the Canucks, posting a +1 through four games.
