I am about to hand in my ballot for the Komets' awards, and I must say there were some categories that were awfully difficult to choose, and I don't mean that in a good way.
Here's what I did:
I voted Tab Lardner for Stonewall Defensive Forward.
For Defenseman of the Year, I went, of course, with Frankie DeAngelis.
The Unsung Hero Award I gave to Leo Thomas.
For Rookie of the Year, I chose Dustin Molle. There was only one other eligible player -- Artem Podshendyalov.
Bobby Phillips got my vote for Most Improved Player.
The "True Komet" award for team spirit and positive attitude on and off the ice, I gave to Guy Dupuis.
And I chose Lincoln Kaleigh Schrock for the Mr. Hustle Award.
The MVP Award will be chosen by the players, and they all will be handed out following the game against Colorado on March 26 at Memorial Coliseum.
In other news, the CHL announced the All-Rookie Team today: Texas goalie Wayne Savage, Allen defenseman David Strathman, Bloomington defenseman Alan Mazur, and forwards Gary Steffes of Tulsa, Aaron Lewicki of Rio Grande Valley and Adam Chorneyko of Colorado.
