Over the next few days the Mile High Hockey team is going to be taking a close look at several of the NHL's end of season awards. We will be highlighting the ones that we feel some of the Avalanche players and coaches are in the running for, as well as all of the others.
As always, I want to hear what, you the reader, thinks. Is Matt Duchene really the odd man out in the Calder race behind Jimmy Howard and Tyler Myers? Is Joe Sacco going to take home the Jack Adams Trophy, or is it going to Dave Tippet in Phoenix? Can Craig Anderson finish his amazing season by earning himself a nomination for the Hart and Vezina Trophies? Is T.J. Galiardi's penalty killing prowess enough to earn him a nomination for the Selke Trophy as best defensive forward? Is David Koci's gentlemanly play enough to get him some strong consideration for the Lady Byng Trophy? Yeah, probably not on the last one.
Check back soon for the answers to these questions and more.
