Jack Connolly, brother of Terrier captain Chris Connolly, (shown above with their parents) was named the 2012 Hobey Baker Award winner in Tampa at the Frozen Four yesterday. A three-year All-American, he led Minnesota-Duluth to its first ever NCAA title in 2011. (Larry Radloff photo). Both brothers attended the award ceremony wearing NCAA championship rings. Chris earned his in 2009 as a freshman.

Another award announced in Tampa was the 2012 Hockey Humanitarian Award, which went to Yale’s Alecc Hughes, who was recognized for her extraordinary efforts to save the life of former teammate Mandi Schwartz, as well as the lives of others battling cancer. For the past two years, Hughes has organized a "White Out For Mandi" fundraiser at Yale's Ingalls Rink; the first raised over $20,000 to help the Schwartz family pay for medical expenses. Unfortunately, Mandi lost her fight and passed away in April 2011.
