"Coach Mattison told me what the Ravens were about, what he thought," Beyer said. "He definitely encouraged me. I hold his opinion in high regard."
Hockey: Hensick for Hobey
TJ Hensick is one of the ten Hobey Baker finalists, as expected. Tambellini is not, even though in my opinion he's Michigan's MVP. Two other CCHA players were nominated, goalies Jordan Sigalet and Tuomas Tarkki. Sigalet, as you may have heard, was recently diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
Conventional wisdom has the award going to Marty Sertich or Brent Sterling, linemates at CC, since they're 1-2 in national scoring. None of the four goalies nominated really has a Ryan Miller-like resume, and the single defenseman up for the award plays for Quinnipiac. So it's down to the five forwards, IMO, and if that's the case 99% of the time they go with the dude who scored the most.
