2003 Winner - PETER SEJNA of Colorado College


The nation’s leader in points and goals was only the second Hobey Baker Award candidate from Europe. His consistency was amplified by the fact that he recorded points in all but one game. In 42 contests, the Tiger sniper bagged 36 goals, 46 assists, and 82 total points. His 15 power play goals ranked third in the nation, and his eight game winners were tied for second. The WCHA Player of the Year helped Colorado College to its first regular season title since 1996, recording 27 multiple point games en route to the top of the college hockey scoring list. Signed as a free agent, he spent four years in the St. Louis Blues system and played 49 NHL games. Raised in Liptovsky Mikulas, Slovakia, he returned to Europe and spent six seasons playing in the Swiss A League with Zurich (3 seasons) and Davos (2 seasons). He is currently in his second season with Rapperswil-Jona.
