Hobey Baker Memorial Award

The Foundation annually recognizes college hockey's most outstanding player through the Hobey Baker Memorial Award, named for the early twentieth century athlete widely regarded to be the first great American hockey player. Established in 1981, the award's unique criteria include strength of character, sportsmanship, and academic achievement as well as excellence on the ice—the characteristics embodied by Hobey Baker in his lifetime. The Hobey Baker Memorial Award is college hockey's most prestigious award.

Population(s) Served
Adults

In 2003 the Foundation created a program for high school ice hockey players and coaches that is rooted in the belief that that it takes more than outstanding hockey skills to develop great student athletes. In short, it takes character to build excellence.

The Hobey Baker High School Character Award is presented annually to the boy or girl on each participating team who best exemplifies Hobey Baker's values and traits on and off the ice. High school hockey coaches in 18 states select the team member to receive the honor based on character, commitment, teamwork, persistence, selflessness, and academic achievement.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth
Families

The Foundation annually honors one of the all-time great contributors to college hockey through the Legends of College Hockey Award. Established in 1981, the award acknowledges the outstanding contributions of individuals who have left their mark on the game, from playing to coaching to rule making.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To honor qualities of character, sportsmanship, hard work and excellence in young men and women.

To promote importance of leadership in today's society by recognizing the leaders of high school and college hockey teams.

We honor college hockey's most outstanding player with the Hobey Baker Memorial Award.

We honor close to 1,000 high school boys and girls with the Hobey Baker High School Character Award.

We honor excellence in college coaching with the Hobey Baker Legend of College Hockey Award.

We have a volunteer committee of 20 men and women who donate time and money to administering the Hobey Baker Memorial Award and the Hobey Baker High School Character Awards. We also have a board of directors which manages the financial and strategic direction of the Foundation.

We have awarded 37 Hobey Baker Memorial Awards and close to 10,000 high school character awards. We continue to grow awareness and recognition of the qualities of character, sportsmanship and excellence in high school and college hockey players.
