Jordan Leopold capped a remarkable career by becoming the school's fourth Hobey Baker Award winner and then leading his Golden Gophers to the NCAA Championship the following day in St. Paul, Minn. Postponing a potentially lucrative career in the National Hockey League with the Calgary Flames, the Golden Valley, Minn., native returned to Minnesota to finish what he started. Leopold and his fellow seniors became only the third class in school history to increase its win total in each of their four seasons. In the end, it was Leopold and fellow All-American John Pohl who hoisted the school's fourth NCAA Championship Trophy.

Leopold's dominance as a defenseman was balanced by his outstanding ability in the offensive end. He became the school's all-time leader among defensemen with 45 career goals, including a single-season school record 20 during his senior season. The two-time WCHA Defensive Player of the Year finished his career ranked third in school history among blueliners with 144 points and fourth with 99 assists. Leopold became Minnesota's fourth two-time All-American and the first player in school history to win the Hobey Baker and the NCAA Championship in the same season.
