Best of luck to BC's Cam Atkinson tonight, as he attempts to become just the third Boston College player to win the Hobey Baker Award. The Hobey will be presented live tonight at 7 p.m. Eastern on ESPNU from the XCel Energy Center in St. Paul. Atkinson joins North Dakota's Matt Frattin and Miami's Andy Miele in the Hobey Hat Trick.

This year's Eagles' leading scorer, Atkinson registered 52 points - 31 goals and 21 assists - in 39 games. He finishes his career with 124 points and 68 goals in 117 games. Atkinson began his professional career a week ago and already has 2 goals and 2 assists in 3 games with the AHL's Springfield Falcons.

Atkinson is going up against North Dakota's Matt Frattin, who finishes as the nation's leading goal scorer with 36 goals this year. Frattin registered a goal and two assists in this year's NCAA Tournament Midwest Regional, but was held scoreless in last night's 2-0 loss to Michigan in the second Frozen Four Semifinal.

Miami's Andy Miele is your other Hobey Hat Trick finalist. Miele finished with 71 points this season (24 goals, 47 assists), best in the nation, but was also held scoreless in Miami's 3-1 loss to UNH in the first round of the Northeast Regional. Miele is attempting to become the first RedHawk to win the Hobey Baker Award.

The stated criteria for the award include: strength of character on and off the ice, displaying outstanding skills in all phases of the game, sportsmanship and scholastic achievements.

Best of luck to Atkinson. Bring it home.
