Welcome to the history books.

For the first time since Ryan Miller won it in 2001, a goaltender has been awarded the Hobey Baker Award as the top men's NCAA player after a tremendous season from Dryden McKay.

A senior with Minnesota State University, McKay had an unbelievable season with a 38-4-0 record with two shutouts and a .934 save percentage. McKay was a runner-up twice for the award after consecutive 10-shutout campaigns, with his save percentage hitting a career-low of .924 last season. 

In four NCAA seasons, McKay had a .932 save percentage, 26 shutouts and a total record of 113-19-4, making him one of the best college goaltenders in decades. Among other career accolades, McKay won the WCHA title as a freshman in 2018-19 before winning multiple awards as the league's top goaltender. His 38 wins this season are an NCAA Division I record.

McKay has one more shot at a national title, with Minnesota State facing off against Denver on Saturday. McKay, an undrafted free agent, will be able to turn pro immediately after.
