Awarded to the NCAA player who best "exhibits strength of character both on and off the ice" and "contributes to the integrity of the team and displays outstanding skills in all phases of the game".[1]

The Hobey Baker Award is an annual award given to the top National Collegiate Athletic Association men's ice hockey player.

It is named for hockey player and World War I veteran Hobey Baker, who played collegiately at Princeton University and learned the game at St. Paul's School (Concord, New Hampshire).

The original statue for the award was commissioned and awarded by the Decathlon Athletic Club (now defunct) in Bloomington, MN. The model for the award trophy was Steve Christoff, who played for Richfield Minnesota High School, the University of Minnesota, the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team and in the National Hockey League.[2]
