What college hockey has known for a few months now finally was made official Friday, as Boston College’s Johnny Gaudreau won the 2014 Hobey Baker Award, which is awarded to college hockey’s top player.

Gaudreau, who will sign a professional contract with the NHL’s Calgary Flames (may be available as early as Sunday) put up eighty points in forty games played for the Boston College Eagles en route to the NCAA semifinals before being upended Thursday by the Union Dutchmen.

According to John Connolly of the Boston Herald, BC’s head coach Jerry York appraised the situation this way: “Yeah, the Flames are going to have their corporate jet pick them up tonight right after (Hobey Baker Award ceremony) and fly them out to Vancouver and they're going to play on Sunday.” York references Bill Arnold as well, who signed with the Flames on Friday.

The Union Dutchmen, who defeated BC as mentioned, will play for a national championship versus the Minnesota Golden Gophers on Saturday night at 7:30pm ET in Philadelphia.
