Port Moody Panthers alumni Angus Redmond has been selected as a nominee for the 2017 Hobey Baker Memorial Award.
The Michigan Tech goaltender is on the long-list ballot for the top individual award in US college hockey.
Redmond is in his first NCAA season after spending three and a half seasons in the BCHL with the Salmon Arm. The Valley West Hawks graduate has a 15-6-5 record along with 1.72 goals against average, a .922 save percentage, and three shutouts in 27 games with the Huskies. The 21-year-old was named WCHA Rookie of the Month in November, WCHA Defensive Player of the Week on November 28, and WCHA Rookie of the Week three times so far this season.
He played 19 games with the Panthers in 2012-13, posting a 4-12-0-0 record, a 4.20 goals against average, and a .907 save percentage.
The Hobey Baker long-list is narrowed to ten names on March 16th after which more fan voting occurs. The three finalists are revealed ahead of the 2017 Frozen Four in Chicago and the winner is announced on April 7th, the night before the NCAA championship final.
