NHL Playoffs Round 1: Canucks vs. Kings Series Awards

Joseph Trenton@@TrentonNHLCFLAnalyst IIIMay 1, 2012

Last week the Canucks concluded their quest towards the Stanley Cup. However, let's take a look at the standout performances by a few key players who played exceptionally well.

 

Hart Memorial Trophy—Most Outstanding Player: Jonathan Quick

He simply was the best player throughout the series. Without Jonathan Quick, the Canucks might have been able to score three or four goals a game against the Kings due to the heavy shot totals the Canucks managed to put up. Game 3 was an example of the Canucks dominating in shots and scoring chances.

 

Norris Trophy—Best Defenseman: Willie Mitchell

Mitchell was successful in shutting down the Canucks' offense and the offensive attacks from the Henrik Sedin line. He also chipped in offensively with some occasional points.

In the next series, I will hand out more awards to the players on the losing side.
