8 Trophies You Won’t See Handed Out At The NHL Awards

Every year the NHL heads to Las Vegas to name the recipients of their post-season awards in an oddly flashy display for such a gritty sport. Since the telecast is strapped for time here are the winners of some lesser known trophies from the regular season and the playoffs.

1. 1) The Classless Subban Trophy: Ryan Kesler

Reserved for the most egregious (and .gif-able) display of embellished diving

4. 2) The Keenan Trophy: John Tortorella

In addition to likely taking home the Jack Adams Award, the coach of the New York Rangers also walks away with the the Keenan for exemplary stubbornness.

5. 3) The Fleury Trophy: Sidney Crosby

Awarded to the executor of the year’s biggest douche move.

6. 4) The Belfour Trophy: Patrick Kane

Awarded to the league’s sloppiest drunk. The Chicago winger is a multiple recipient and seems determined on having this prestigious recognition re-named in his honor someday.

9. 5) The Avery Trophy: Joe Vitale

Awarded to the instigator of the craziest line brawl of the year. Here’s the penalties after it was all said and done:

18:57 PHI Wayne Simmonds : Fighting (maj) — 5 min
18:57 PIT Deryk Engelland : Fighting (maj) — 5 min
18:57 PHI Pavel Kubina : Unsportsmanlike conduct — 2 min

10. 6) The Quackenbush Trophy: Marian Gaborik

Saluting the silliest moment of the NHL season, The Quackenbush Trophy goes to Gaborik for celebrating scoring on fellow New York Ranger Henrik Lundqvist in the All Star Game by re-enacting a rather dubious move by another teammate Artem Anisimov.

12. 7) The Datsyuk Trophy: Matt Duchene

The Colorado center takes home the Datsyuk for goal of the year with this amazing display of hand-eye co-ordination.

13. 8) The Thom Yorke Award: Tim Thomas

This special designation goes to the now former Bruins goaltender for leaving his team “High And Dry”. God’s will be done.
