Prince Rupert Minor Hockey product Frank Slubowski is one step closer to being named the best player in NCAA hockey.
When the first round of voting for the prestigious Hobey Baker Award closed on March 10, Slubowski had amassed 9,654 votes which was good enough for sixth place and a spot in the Top 10.
Who wins the award is now in the hands of a selection committee comprised of media, NHL scouts, college hockey coaches and officials, but supporters can still help Slubowski on his run for the trophy. A second phase of fan voting will get underway on March 21 and closes on March 31. How the player finishes in this round of voting will be counted toward his final selection score, counting for one per cent of the deciding points.
Slubowski finished his second season with the Broncos having started every game for the team and finishing with an 18-7-5 record, an impressive 1.76 goals against average and a .924 save percentage.
Those wanting to support Slubowski can visit www.voteforhobey.com between March 21 and March 31 and cast their vote for him. People can vote once per day on the site.
