Compiled with help from USCHO Staff, wire reports and press releases

Nashville Predators prospect Blake Geoffrion, a senior for the University of Wisconsin, was named one of the Hobey Hat Trick finalists on Wednesday. The Hobey Baker Award, given to the top player in NCAA hockey, will be presented on April 9 at Detroit’s Ford Field, site of the Frozen Four.

Geoffrion, a 2006 second round pick by the Predators, has captained Wisconsin to the Frozen Four. It marks the second time in as many years the Preds have had a prospect rank among the top-three in Hobey Baker voting. Colin Wilson, a rookie with the Preds this season, finished among the top-three in last year's voting.

New Hampshire forward Bobby Butler and Maine forward Gustav Nyquist are the other two members of the Hobey Hat Trick finalists. The finalists were selected by a 24-member selection committee and online fan voting.

Butler, a senior, leads the country with 29 goals. Also a finalist for the Hockey Humanitarian Award, he was the winner of the Walter Brown Award as the top American-born player in New England and was Hockey East’s player of the year.

At 53 points, he ranks behind only Nyquist on the national scoring list. He recently signed a free-agent contract with the NHL’s Ottawa Senators.

Geoffrion, one of three captains at Wisconsin, leads the Badgers with 27 goals. The senior was named the most valuable player at the West Regional after posting two goals and five points in victories over Vermont and St. Cloud State.

A Nashville draft pick, he ranks 12th nationally in points per game at 1.26 (48 points), and his goals total is tied for second nationally behind Butler.

Nyquist, a sophomore, is the national scoring leader with 61 points on 19 goals and 42 assists in 39 games.

The Detroit draft pick was held without a point in consecutive games only once this season, and he had six games with three or more points.
