With the NHL Awards presented in Las Vegas tonight, I thought we at Barry Melrose Rocks should present our player awards for the season. We would have an official awards ceremony, and we had the Rugby, North Dakita VFW all locked up, but scheduled it against the NHL awards, so we decided just to announce the winners online. Make the jump to see who tonight's winners are!
The Loser Domi Award for Accomplishment While Under the Influence: Patrick Kane managed to stay out of the news this year, but this guy didn't. Congratulations, Joel Bruss, for your achievement, driving a zamboni while intoxicated.
The Kevin Schultz Memorial Award (Sort of the opposite of a 'comeack player', more for a player who just... went away): Alexander Ovechkin.
The Ryan Henning Achievement with Foodstuffs award: Dustin Penner for "Injury with pancakes"
Best Picture: This one:
Lady Byng Memorial Trophy Trophy (Awarded to the award that people least care about): Lady Byng Memorial Trophy
Nicholas Cage Award for Creepiness: The Sedins (8th year in a row)
Barry Melrose Rocks Lifetime Achievement Award: Barry Melrose (duh)
Thanks for attending this year's Barry Melrose Rocks Award post! I think we all appreciated the entire absense of stupid skits!
