Boston College junior forward Johnny Gaudreau is College Hockey News' 2013-14 Player of the Year.

Gaudreau has already stockpiled dozens of honors, and is a favorite to win this year's Hobey Baker Award. It's the second straight season Gaudreau is in the Hobey Hat Trick, signifying him as a top-three vote getter.

Gaudreau had eight points last weekend in leading Boston College to the Frozen Four, where the Eagles will face Union in Thursday's semifinal. Gaudreau won a national championship with BC in his freshman season.

The 5-foot-8 native of Carneys Point, N.J., has 35 goals and 77 points so far this season, the highest point total in Division I college hockey since Chris Kunitz had 79 for Ferris State and Hobey winner Peter Sejna had 82 for Colorado College in 2003.

His plus-41 rating is also first in the nation, and his 10 power-play goals ranks fifth. He also is tied with three other players for first in game-winning goals with seven.

Gaudreau was drafted by the Calgary Flames in the 4th round in 2011. For his career, he now has 77-95—172 in 114 games. He was First Team All-CHN last year.
