  1. I don’t want to disparage other Hobey Finalists, or be an obvious homer, but I have to think Jack should be front runner. Granted I only saw Abbott play one game, but other than when he scored a goal against us, you really didn’t hear his name much. Jack was all over the ice, scoring, setting up plays, quarter backing the power play, back checking, fore checking, blocking shots, we heard his name all night.

    Just saying.
