Two TPH Alumni Nominated for Hobey Baker Award
The 2021 Hobey Baker Nominees were announced Monday and TPH is excited to see both Declan Carlile and Zach Solow as two of the 50 nominees.
Named after Hobart Amory Hare Baker, the Hobey Baker Award is considered the top award in all of college hockey. The honor is bestowed on the student-athlete who exhibits strength and character, both on and off the ice; while additionally contributing to the integrity of the program, displaying outstanding skills in all phases of the game and shows great scholastic achievement, and sportsmanship.
Just understanding the type of character and drive it takes to be considered for this award, it is an honor to be nominated. Now factor in that there over 4,300 NCAA Division I hockey players, which statistically puts these players in the top one percent.
In his second season at Merrimack, Carlile has displayed his ability on the ice leading Hockey East and second in the nation in blocked shots while also leading his team in plus/minus. Coming off a season where he was named to to the Hockey East All-Rookie Team, the Business Administration major looks to help his team move up the Hockey East standings. Carlile is a TPH Detroit Summer Progression Program alumni.
As a senior at Northeastern, Solow was named captain this season and leads the team in scoring (11gp, 6g, 7a, 13p). Last season was memorable for Solow who was awarded the Beanpot MVP helping Northeastern win their third consecutive Beanpot title. Solow looks to continue helping the #14 Northeastern Huskies climb in the rankings. Solow is a Nashville Jr Predators alumni.
