Fun With Awards! Who's Your Favorite?

It has only been 1 week since Florida Panther hockey but it already sems like it’s been much longer. To help pass some time, I thought it would be fun to answer some questions about our team! Remember in high school, students would be nominated for superlatives? Well, that is kind of the idea here. Frank and I came up with a list of “superlative” categories and you get to nominate 1 player per category. You can repeat the same player for different categories.  The player with the most nominations will win and a later article will be posted with the winners! Comment in the comment box below with your nominations!
