CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Junior defenseman Adam Fox was named one of 81 nominees for the 2019 Hobey Baker Award today (Jan. 16).
Awarded annually to college hockey's top player, the Hobey Baker Award fan voting opened today and will run through March 10.
Fox (7-16-23) is off to a tremendous start for Harvard, coming off back-to-back All-American campaigns. A preseason All-ECAC Hockey selection, Fox is third in the country in scoring (per game), averaging 1.53 points per contest. He is on pace to near the school record for points by a Harvard defenseman in one season, set by Mark Fusco '83, who had 46 points (13-33-46) in 1982-83.
On Oct. 27 at Dartmouth, Fox notched a career high five points (goal, four assists), becoming the first Harvard player to have five points since Alexander Kerfoot did it against BC on Nov. 11, 2014. He was named HCA National Player of the Month, and ECAC Hockey Player of the Month in November.
A native of Jericho, N.Y., Fox is a two-time ECAC Hockey All-Academic selection and a psychology concentrator at Harvard. He has participated in Harvard Hockey community initiatives, leading the team's fundraising effort for the Jimmy Fund Walk, and participating in the One Summit Skate.
Harvard has had a Hobey Baker Top 10 finalist in four straight seasons, and a Hobey Hat Trick selection in two of the last three years. Jimmy Vesey '16 won the 2016 Hobey Baker Award, joining Lane MacDonald (1989), Scott Fusco (1986) and Mark Fusco (1983) as Harvard winners of Division I college hockey's highest honor.
