In our effort to milk every little bit of good news out of this year's Boston College Hockey team, we would like to announce another award. And honestly, I'll take any chance I can get to talk about this player. Freshman forward Johnny Gaudreau was named the USCHO Rookie of the Year.

Gaudreau, a 5-foot-8, 150-pound forward, led all NCAA Division I freshmen in scoring with 45 points (21 goals, 24 assists).

At the holiday break, he had seven goals and 14 points in 18 games. After, he pushed past a point per game, with 14 goals and 31 points in 26 games.

Gaudreau had seven power-play goals for the season and five goals were game winners. He had 12 multi-point games, including a four-point outing against North Dakota in just his second collegiate game.

Side note: Does anyone really believe that Gaudreau is really 5-foot-8?

Even with the loss of Chris Kreider and Brian Dumoulin, BC fans can look forward to another year of JG. Gaudreau is truly a special player, and I think I can speak for the rest of BC Nation by saying "Is it October yet?"
