And The Awards Go To…(2013 Edition)

Earlier tonight I attended the annual Devils Booster Club Awards Banquet (it didn’t hurt that the venue was exactly a 3 minute car ride from my house, either). A little earlier than normal like last year (thanks to the hectic season ending schedule), but always a fun night with the team. Now let’s get on with the awards, shall we?

First, the Bowlathon awards (from way back in December):

Players High Score: Scott Parse (167; sadly Keith Kinkaid was informed that he could not rig another perfect game to get the trophy)
Players Best Effort (otherwise known as lowest score): Eric Gelinas (we’ll say below 100)

Next, the Acknowledgment of Achievements:

Goal Scoring Leader: Joe Whitney (21)
Assist Leader: Matt Anderson (25)
Game Winning Goal Leader: Joe Whitney (4)
Shorthanded Goal Leader: Jacob Josefson (2)
Power Play Goal Leader: Joe Whitney (4)
First AHL Goal: Harri Pesonen, Corbin McPherson, Raman Hrabarenka, Kelly Zajac
Wendy’s Chili Goals (to explain: if the Devils score 3 goals during a home game, everyone gets a free cup of Wendy’s Chili the next day): Matt Anderson, Chad Wiseman, Tim Sestito, Jacob Josefson, Eric Gelinas; Joe Whitney & Mike Sislo crowned co-Chili Champions for having 2 apiece

Third Star of the Year: Jeff Frazee
Second Star of the Year: Keith Kinkaid
First Star of the Year: Joe Whitney
(determined by how many times a player earned a star of the game)

Booster Club-voted Awards:

Offensive Player of the Year: Matt Anderson
Defensive Player of the Year: Dan Kelly
Most Electrifying Player: Darcy Zajac
Unsung Hero: Harri Pesonen
Fan Favorite: Keith Kinkaid

Coach’s Awards:

Most Improved Player: Corbin McPherson
John Cunniff Memorial Award: Chris McKelvie

As for a few highlights:
