This week was a big week in the NHL with the NHL Awards in Vegas and the draft in Sunrise, Florida. Hockey has been all over the place. So I’m planning to break these events down into a couple of posts. I thought one post might overwhelm all of you.
Let’s get started!
Wednesday night, June 24th was the 2015 NHL Awards in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Here is a list of winners for the night:
HART MEMORIAL TROPHY – CAREY PRICE, GOALTENDER, MONTREAL CANADIENS

Alright there you have it the winners. Carey Price racked up on Wednesday night, but he deserved each trophy. He was awesome this past season. At the awards they also revealed the cover of EA Sports NHL 16. The cover features Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane holding the Stanley Cup above their head. I have to admit this has to be my favorite.
I believe I covered all the main points of the night. I linked the video of the cover reveal, courtesy of the NHL.
I have another post coming out really soon about the NHL Draft. Let’s just say I wasn’t all to happy about the draft.
Until Next Time!
