Boston College forward Johnny Gaudreau won the Hobey Baker Award Friday night as the top Division I college hockey player and signed with the Calgary Flames.
Gaudreau, from Carney's Point, New Jersy, won the award a day after Boston College lost to Union in the NCAA semifinals. He passed up his senior season to sign with Calgary.
The 5-foot-7, 150-pound forward led the nation with 36 goals and 44 assists. He's the first player to reach 80 points since Colorado College's Peter Sejna had 82 in 2002-03.
St. Lawrence's Greg Carey and St. Cloud State's Nic Dowd were the other finalists.
Union will play Minnesota in the championship game Saturday night in Philadelphia.
The Flames also signed Boston College forward Bill Arnold, who had 14 goals and 39 assists as a senior.
