Starting Wednesday, Jan. 16 fans can vote for the winner of the 2019 Hobey Baker Award. Two Chicago Blackhawks prospects are among the eligible players: Penn State center Evan Barratt and Denver defenseman Ian Mitchell.

Phase I fan voting, which is open to fans, is open now through Sunday, March 10, 2019.Voting takes place on Facebook.

Mitchell, who turns 20 on Friday, is currently a sophomore at the University of Denver. Originally a second round pick (#57 overall) by the Blackhawks in the 2017 NHL Draft, Mitchell has 15 points (three goals, 12 assists) in 18 games for the Pioneers.

Barratt, who coincidentally turns 20 exactly one month after Mitchell (Feb. 18), is also a sophomore. At Penn State, Barratt ranks among the NCAA leaders with 13 goals and 30 points in 19 games. He also represented the United States at this year’s World Junior Championships, registering one goal in seven games for the US.

  1. Good for them and for the Hawks

    Mitchell was also at the WJC for Canada scoring a goal along with maybe 4 assists (not quite sure on that number)

  2. Good on both of them, looks good for organization too.

    Wrap Mitchell 1g 2a at wjc in 5games and Barratt 1gwg at wjc

  3. vote for anyone else if they are unsigned; Probably get themselve an extra 50 grand for a fan vote…..

  4. Plus the curse of the Hobey-other than Gaudreau and Eichel –
    heck the last 17 years from Leopold to Gaudette

  5. Actually the Four Horsemen are short fast and loads of skill just like that Gaudreau person. Mitchell is the Gaudreau of Defensmen.

  6. That Penn State hockey is top GF team every yr it seems like last few yrs/since Saader younger brother and Eddie O was there.

  7. I think it’s like winning the par 3 contest at Augusta. Brendan Morrison, Tony Hrkac, Kip Miller, Drew LeBlanc played for the Hawks. Bill Watson drafted by Hawks. Michael Mottau a Hawks scout.

  8. Wasnt that Michigan dud draft pick the hoboy winner to.

    Good thing these guys prob do not win that, so lucks on these guys side.

  9. The last 5 Hobey Baker winners Johnny Gaudreau, Jack Eichel, Jimmy Vesey, Will Butcher and Adam Gaudette. The first 3 have made a big impression, Butcher has become a very good top 4 guy for the Devils and Gaudette as a rookie being compared to a young Toews. I’ll take that type of return anyday.

  10. HOBIE BAKER is not that impressive unless you talk about Eichel and Gaudreau. The rest have never really become superstars. And if Gaudette can’t crack the Canucks lineup…?
    Drew Leblanc people?

  11. Yeah great players with as many Cups as I have. Last Hobey Baker winner to get a Cup………2008 Kevin Porter. Broke an ankle with Pitt in 16 but played enough games to have his name on the Cup.

  12. Need more players drafted from CHL, enough of these USHL or College players! ! Again tonight, you see there is only one offensive talent and that is numbeer 88! The rest, would not crack the top two lines of any team in the top 10 of the league and maybe top 15. The Cat is a smart little player but does not get his nose dirty. Speed is a this problem on this team. Saad is not the player he was back in 2013 and 2015. No speed! Anisimov slow, Strome much much slower, Kahun can’t skate, chippy and easy to knock off the puck. Toews average with a little burst. Perlini is good skater. Cagg okay as well but the rest is SLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOWWWWW.
    Kunitz, Kruger, Hayden, etc….

  13. Need to sign Panarin, and draft a forwards!!! Wingers!!! Centers!!! The Cat can be a trigger guy with Saad and Toews.
    The rest, maybe sign Nick Schmaltz for Kane and Panarin!
    David Perron was available this off season but no, Kunitz and Ward, Manning and Davidson!

  14. Kudos to Jamal Myers who says team needs to find that hunger in the dressing room before going onto the ice? Yeah, well Jamal only if you have talent does hunger resonate. When you don’t, you need KANE to play 29 minutes. Why? the team is 8 games under .500, not a playoff team like Mr. Salesman Bowman thinks, then get Kunitz, Kruger to retire, Kahun Kampf play 4th line with Hayden and try to just finish last. They are last in the PP? Meaning this coach has no plan either. Plays Kane all the time to save face for Bowman??? Burning Kane can easily result in a serious injury.
    Plain DUMB!!!
