Matt Frattin Is A 2011 Hobey Baker Award Finalist

Matt Frattin has been announced as one of three finalists for the Hobey Baker Award which is awarded to the NCAA's top player. Here is their profile:

Matt Frattin – University of North Dakota, Senior, Forward, Edmonton, Alberta

Sometimes you need a second chance in life. Suspended by his team for the first half of last season, Matt Frattin earned an opportunity to rejoin the squad for the second half, then passed up pro hockey to return for his senior season. And what a year. Named the WCHA Player of the Year and a First Team all-star, Frattin helped North Dakota to a number one national ranking plus the WCHA regular season and playoff titles and a berth in next week’s NCAA Frozen Four championship. He led the conference in scoring bagging 22 goals and 40 points in 28 league games. Entering the Frozen Four, his 36 goals and 24 assists for 60 points, places him first in the nation in goals by a lofty 5-goal margin and second in points. The prototypical power forward is a Recreation and Tourism Studies major and two-time All Academic student-athlete. He has been active with a Grand Forks, ND Rescue Mission, the Grand Forks Parks District and with the Sioux Kids Club. He is a draft pick of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

He'll be competing against Cam Atkinson, a junior forward from Boston College (Sucks!) and Andy Miele, a senior forward from Miami University of Ohio which is the alma mater of the late Brendan Burke.
