Terrier Matt Gilroy is 2009 Hobey Baker

Matt Gilroy beat fellow Terrier Colin Wilson and Northeastern’s Brad Thiessen to become 2009′s Hobey Baker, college hockey’s player of the year.  Gilroy is the second Terrier to win the honor, following in Chris Drury’s 1998 footsteps.

Gilroy scored eight goals and recorded 28 assists, with his 36 points leading all conference defensemen.  He made the All-Tournament team as well as earning his third consecutive All-Conference honors.  All the accolades he has garnered complete a 180 for him as he joined the BU squad as a walk on.  He also hopes to put the exclamation point on the season by helping his Terriers to the National Championship Saturday night against Miami.

  2. A well-deserved honor for a great player. Hopefully he can bring home the NCAA title later tonight…

  3. Agreed on Gilroy and you called it. Completes quite the Cinderella story for him. And, he did help the Terriers win the title! Congrats!
