The day-by-day achievements of this year’s 10 finalists for the Patty Kazmaier Award are too long for any one person to remember, so USCHO is providing the service of listing them right here. This list highlights games in which candidates made indisputable contribution to the outcome, with an emphasis on results against NCAA contenders. The hope is that this list will capture each candidate’s achievements better than the traditional selection of aggregate season statistics.
