Wisconsin forwards Michael Mersch and Mark Zengerle have been nominated for the 2013 Hobey Baker Award.

Voting for the Hobey Baker Award opened up this week, and the University of Wisconsin has two candidates on the ballot. Junior forwards Michael Mersch (Park Ridge, Ill.), and Mark Zengerle (Rochester, N.Y.) were the two players nominated by the Wisconsin coaching staff this year.

Mersch has enjoyed a break-out season so far this year for Wisconsin, and leads the Badgers in goals (12), and total points (17) in 18 games this season.

A junior center, Zengerle has recorded three goals and seven assists in 12 games on the season despite missing a stretch after he suffered a broken finger vs Colorado College that required surgery.

The Hobey Baker is annually awarded to the best player in college hockey. The criteria takes into account not only on-ice accomplishments, but has scholastic and character components as well.

Wisconsin claimed their first, and only, Hobey Baker Award in 2010 when current Montreal Canadiens forward Blake Geoffrion brought the historic trophy back to Madison.
