If they had their way they would just call some of them the following:
Shooters award.
Friendliest player award.
Sorry about all my penalties award.
I pass the puck alot and my team mate scored award...
Jesus this could be the next biggest, dumbest suggestion by anyone!!!
Whats next a glowing puck!!!Oh we tried that.
