Nothing to do with cards


My ice hockey team won two trophies in the National Hockey League (NHL) annual awards,

The Vezina Trophy, awarded to the "goalkeeper adjudged to be the best at his position," as selected by NHL General Managers went to Ryan Miller. Some of you may know him from the winter olympics, he played in goal for Team USA. He is my fave player on the Sabres and prob the reason i follow them. he is an amazing goal keeper and its the first time he's won this trophey although he was nominated for it a few years ago.

The Calder Memorial Trophy for 2009-2010, awarded "to the player selected as the most proficient in his first year of competition in the National Hockey League" was won by rookie Tyler Myers, His 1st year in the team and he played fantastic, racking up 23.44 ice time mins, more then the other defenderes on the team, also it is unusual for a defence man to win the Calder, the last defence man who won it, won it in 2003.

I also just found out Ryan Miller won the NHL Foundation Player award which is for the player
"who applies the core values of ice hockey-commitment, perseverance and teamwork—to enrich the lives of people in his community" He gets a $25,000 grand for causes he supports, which will go to the Steadfast foundation which is a foundation he runs, that helps people suffering from cancer, esp children suffering from it.

So thats the end of my hockey rant. GO SABRES!!!!!!!!!!
