The Chicago Blackhawks' fast start to the 2011-12 Stanley Cup campaign has been a team effort, but the individual play of a few of the Hawks has been eye-catching.
The NHL hosts its annual NHL Awards show that honors a handful of players, as well as a coach, for their individual performances. The James Norris Memorial Trophy, Frank J. Selke Trophy, Jack Adams Award, Calder Memorial Trophy, Hart Memorial Trophy and Vezina Trophy are just some of the awards handed out at the end of each NHL season.
Jonathan Toews, who was a finalist for the Selke Trophy, was the Blackhawk representing the team at the NHL Awards in Las Vegas, but he went home empty handed after Vancouver Canucks forward Ryan Kesler won the award.
At the rate the Hawks are playing this year, it wouldn't be a surprise if a few Blackhawks were named as finalists and have the opportunity to accept their award on stage after the season.
