1988 Hobey Baker Award Winner
Robb Stauber was the first goaltender to win the Hobey Baker Award when it was presented to him after his sophomore season in 1988. The Duluth, Minn., native was the backbone of the Golden Gophers that year. He started in each of Minnesota's 44 games, and recorded a school-record five shutouts en route to a 2.72 goals-against-average. He was named first-team All-American and team Most Valuable Performer as well as being a first-team All-WCHA selection. Stauber still holds numerous goaltending records at Minnesota - single-season records for games played, minutes played, saves and shutouts. He ranks second on the career charts in games played, minutes played, wins, goals-against-average and saves percentage.
During Stauber's three-year career at Minnesota, the team posted a 102-34-4 record, including back-to-back WCHA Championships in 1988 and 1989. He also led the team to three straight NCAA final four appearances. His career record during that period was a sterling 73-23-0. A draft pick of the Los Angles Kings, he played five years in the Kings organization, and, during the 1994-95 season, was traded to the Buffalo Sabres. He finished his professional career with the New York Rangers' organization in 1998.
Stauber is currently the goaltender coach with the Golden Gophers.
