Not sure what to make of this, if anything, but USA Hockey announced its annual award winners today and the college player of the year award went to Boston University’s Colin Wilson, the son of ex-Ranger Carey Wilson.
In other words, it did not go to Wilson’s teammate, defenseman Matt Gilroy, the Rangers’ signee who won the Hobey Baker award as college hockey’s best player. Wilson had been a finalist for the Hobey Baker. He is a draft pick of the Nashville Predators (No. 7 overall in 2008).
