The University of Wisconsin has come one step closer to have a Hobey Baker Award winner, as senior tri-captain Blake Geoffrion was named as one of three finalist for the award Friday.

MADISON – Wisconsin senior forward Blake Geoffrion has been named as part of the “Hobey Hat Trick ” of three finalists for the 2010 Hobey Baker Memorial Award. The award goes to college hockey’s top player.

Other finalists include New Hampshire senior forward Bobby Butler and Maine sophomore forward Gustav Nyquist.

Entering last weekend, Geoffrion leads the WCHA with 25 goals, while his 19 goals in WCHA games also finished as tops in the league. Geoffrion finished the WCHA season with 34 league points, one off the scoring title, but his 1.36 points-per-game average was tops during conference action.

In the playoffs, few have come close to matching Geoffrion. In six postseason games, Geoffrion has six goals and 11 points. He also has two game-winning goals, two power-play goals and a first goal. He leads the Badgers with 30 shots and is 60.7 percent on faceoffs (105-68). He was named the NCAA West Regional Most Outstanding Player after his two-goal, five-point performance.

The winner is named Friday, April 9 live on ESPNU during the Frozen Four festivities at 6 p.m. CT.
