The power of MGoBlog must be used for good. Casting your fan "Vote for Hobey" vote(s) for Shawn Hunwick qualifies, IME.
Hobey Baker Memorial Award Selection ProcessEvery head hockey coach at an accredited Division I NCAA school receives one ballot. Coaches are asked to pick the top three players in their league and the top three players in the nation (two separate rankings, three players each; a player may be listed in both places, and a coach can vote for his own player).
Coaches from 58 schools receive a ballot. Those ballots, along with Vote for Hobey's Preliminary Voting results, are tabulated by an accounting firm to determine the 10 finalists.
This top ten advances to the Selection Committee, which decides the eventual winner from the top ten. This committee is composed of print media, electronic media, NHL scouts, and the American Hockey Coaches Association (college hockey coaches). Its members are spread out among the hockey-playing section of the United States.
So, this vote helps to determine the 10 finalists. Do it for Shawn. Do it for Michigan. Do it for yourself. Just Do It (not a pro-Nike/anti-Adidas reference).
