Third time's the charm. With this being his third season nominated as a top-10 finalist, Dryden McKay is the winner of the 2022 Hobey Baker Award. He's only the third goaltender to win the award — and the first since Ryan Miller in 2001.
McKay ranks second in the country in goals against average at 1.27. His .934 save percentage is tied for third. He will also lead Minnesota State as the Mavericks take on Denver in the Frozen Four title game on Saturday night.
Denver's Bobby Brink and Minnesota's Ben Meyers were the other finalists.

- Mike Richter Award (top goaltender): Devon Levi, Northeastern
