NHL Awards picks

By Rick Morris

The NHL Awards Show is always a big favorite in the FDH family, so much so that this year The FDH New York Bureau is out in Las Vegas for the event's first production in the world's most fabulous city. As he is pound-for-pound the finest guest booker walking the earth today, we await with baited breath word on future guests to THE FDH LOUNGE program (Wednesdays, 7-10 PM EDT on that will be secured based on this visit!

In the meantime, we have our FDH picks for the awards that were made on THE GOON SQUAD show-within-a-show last night on THE FDH LOUNGE. Goon co-host Kyle O'Rourke and I agreed on all of our selections for the awards.

^ Hart Trophy: Alex Ovechkin
^ Pearson Award: Alex Ovechkin
^ Calder Trophy: Steve Mason
^ Norris Trophy: Mike Green
^ Vezina Trophy: Steve Mason
^ Jack Adams Award: Andy Murray
^ Selke Trophy: Pavel Datsyuk

Side note, as a Red Wings fan it pains me to pick against Pavel for the Hart and Pearson and against Norris Nick for his 7th trophy (he's my favorite current player and I've got an autographed jersey in a glass case for crying out loud!), but I have to make objective picks and these are the ones. Having said that, I'm still rooting for them.
