he Hobey Baker Award is given to the top NCAA men’s ice hockey player of the season. To win the award, the player must not only contribute to his team with outstanding skills but also excel academically and show character, both on and off the ice. Each NCAA college can nominate up to three candidates who best exemplify the passion, sportsmanship, courage, and honor exhibited by Hobey Baker, the best amateur player of his time and a World War I veteran. Jack Dugan ‘17 was the only player nominated by Providence College this year.

Dugan, in his two seasons at Northwood, tallied over 130 points in under 100 games. After graduating from Northwood, he played for the Chicago Steel in the United States Hockey League, where he recorded 66 points in 54 games. Spending a year playing Juniors was enough to prepare him to play at Providence College. In his first and second years at college, he tallied 39 and 52 points each. Dugan averaged over 1.5 points per game and had 17 multi-point games and three four-point games.

His extraordinary achievements did not go unnoticed. In addition to his nomination for the Hobey Baker Award, Dugan was also named a First Team CCM/AHCA All American, an honor given to the nation’s top 25 college hockey players. After college, he will likely play for the Las Vegas Golden Knights of the National Hockey League.
