Senior forward Drew LeBlanc of Hermantown is among ten nominees for the annual Hobey Baker Award for NCAA Hockey's best player.

LeBlanc led SCSU to a great season as a team, while having a fantastic season individually as well.

The Huskies won their first ever MacNaughton Cup as the WCHA regular season champions with LeBlanc wearing the captain's 'C.'

LeBlanc led NCAA Hockey in assists with 37, and is third in the country with 50 points overall. He was the WCHA's Most Valuable Player this season as well as the Student-Athlete of the Year. He was the first player to win both of those honors in the same season.

The Huskies will take on Wisconsin at 2 pm Friday at Xcel Energy Center in the WCHA Final Five semifinal.
