APPLE VALLEY, Minn., April 2 (UPI) -- Chris Kunitz of Ferris State, who recently signed with the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim, is one of three finalists for the Hobey Baker Award.
Cornell goaltender Dave LeNeveu and Colorado College forward Peter Sejna also have been named as finalists for the award, which honors the best player in college hockey.
Kunitz had 35 goals and 44 assists in just 42 games, and led the Bulldogs to a school-record 31 wins this season.
LeNeveu posted the best goals-against average in college hockey history (1.44), and has guided Cornell to a date in the NCAA Frozen Four next week. He posted a 28-2-1 record, and broke many of the school records held by former Montreal Canadiens goalie and Hall of Famer Ken Dryden.
The native of Slovakia had 36 goals and 46 assists, and recorded a point in all but one of Tigers' 42 games.
The winner will be announced on April 11 at the Frozen Four in Buffalo, N.Y.
