The day off between the Frozen Four semifinals and final game is the time for college hockey's awards.
The Hobey Baker Award went to Minnesota-Duluth's Jack Connolly, who became the fifth player from UMD to win the award. It's a fitting ending to a storybook career for the hometown kid that wasn't recruited by any other schools before committing to the Bulldogs, that included 197 career points, a WCHA playoff title, and the school's first ever national title.
Meanwhile, the NCAA's first and second team All-Americans were announced. Here they are:
