XHL SEASON AWARDS…..voting begins Monday.
As most of you know, every year, the XHL votes on several award categories. We will continue with the voting the way its been done the last couple of years. Each team member selects their nominee for MVP, Best defensemen, Best Goalie, Sportsmanship, Rookie of the year, Most improved, and if they have any Service Award Nominees.
The preliminary ballots are due by Wednesday 7/23. The captains and the board members will then narrow the nominee’s to the top 3 (and ties). These will be done before Monday 7/28. The final 3 will then be voted upon by all the league members next week.
Last year we tried doing the awards at the end of the year get together at Dave Jewell’s house. But there was not alot of attendance that evening, so we will go back to having them between game 1 and 2 of the Finals.
Hope to see you all there.
