    Note the time of the article

    Geoffrion becomes Badgers' first Hobey Baker winner
    Madison.com sports | Posted: Friday, April 9, 2010 6:00 pm | No Comments Posted

    DETROIT -- The University of Wisconsin men's hockey program has produced 64 NHL players, 33 All-Americans and 21 Olympians, along with six national championships.

    But no Badger had ever won the Hobey Baker Award, college hockey's version of the Heisman Trophy, since its inception in 1981.

    Until Friday, that is.

    UW forward Blake Geoffrion, who declined overtures from the NHL to return for his senior season, captured the top individual honor in the game Friday night in a ceremony at Ford Field that was broadcast on ESPNU.

    Geoffrion has scored 28 goals -- including 15 on the power-play -- and amassed 50 points for the Badgers, who will face Boston College for the NCAA title on Saturday night.

    He edged two other candidates for the honor: Maine's Gustav Nyquist and New Hampshire's Billy Butler.

    For more on this historic achievement -- including photos and a video interview with Geoffrion -- visit Madison.com sports throughout the evening and pick up Saturday's edition of the Wisconsin State Journal.
    Ha ha...

        It was written in a way that it shouldn't have been released until tomorrow.

          They may have just produced this in advance, just in case.
