Capping a remarkable four-year career, the Golden Gophers captain was named Minnesota’s fourth Hobey Baker Award winner and went on to help his team to its fourth NCAA championship. A Hobey Baker finalist for two straight seasons, Leopold posted 48 points in 44 games to lead all defensemen in the nation in scoring. The mobile blue-liner from Golden Valley, Minnesota, scored 20 goals, assisted on another 28, and tallied eight power play goals in his super season. Jordan established two team records by a defenseman—most goals in a season (20) and in a career (45)—while finishing third in team points during his senior season. For the second straight year, Leopold was the WCHA Defensive Player of the Year and a First Team all-star. A two-time All American, Leopold has been an NHL player for eleven years, spending three seasons each with Calgary Flames and Colorado Avalanche, and a split season with the Florida Panthers and the Pittsburgh Penquins. After two complete seasons with the Buffalo Sabres he was traded midway through the 2012-13 season to St. Louis, where he continues to play for the Blues.
