Minnesota State senior goalie Dryden McKay was named the winner of the Hobey Baker Award on Friday as the top player in NCAA Division I men's hockey.
McKay set NCAA records with 37 wins and 34 shutouts this season for a Mavericks team that finished 38-4 and is set to face Denver University in the Frozen Four final on Saturday.
McKay entered the Frozen Four second in goals-against average (1.28) and third in saves percentage (.934). He made 16 saves in Minnesota State's 5-1 win over Minnesota in Thursday's semifinal.
A Hobey Baker finalist last season as well, McKay, 24, has not been drafted by an NHL team and is a free agent.
