It was no question that Cale Makar would be taking this year’s Hobey Baker Memorial Award home with him. 

The sophomore helped lead the UMass Minutemen to the NCAA Frozen Four along with a Hockey East regular season title. Individually, was third overall in scoring with 16 goals and 32 assists (48 points) on the year. In addition he was named the conference Player of the Year and 1st team All-American. Not to mention being the first defensemen in 20 years to lead Hockey East in scoring.
