Well deserved. IMHO the best player/leader in the NHL.
Three very worthy nominees. Hopefully Tazer adds it to his trophy case.
The fact that Shane Doan and Dustin Brown have won this award but Toews hasn’t, means this is not a valid award based upon it’s description “to the player who exemplifies great leadership qualities to his team, on and off the ice during the regular season.” If it were really handed out based upon that criteria, Toews would win it about every other year.
I thought Tazer would have won it last year, I am sure he will this year! Best leader in pro sports!
