2012 NHL Awards Show – Worst Show about the Best in Hockey

Posted on June 21, 2012 by


*Note from Tracy: Thanks Noreen so much to put this together! I didn’t get a chance to watch and you even added a few awards that were not just on the show last night. Much Appreciated!

Yesterday I watched one of the tackiest award shows in all of television. But, I did get to see the players without their headgear on and of course I didn’t recognize any of them. Well maybe Lundqvist because you know, how can you not recognize a hunk like that. I found a new kid on the block to love by the name of Evgeni Malkin. What a sweetie. The highlight of the show for me was watching Will Arnett as Brandon Shanahan handing out penalties to everyone that he could possibly insult. Being 76 years old, I had to mute most of Nickelback’s music as I’m not a big fan of loud noises and not being able to understand a word that they sang. I am not exactly looking forward to next year’s award show but I’ll still watch it because, hey, it’s about hockey and I’m hooked. So here’s a list of the awards for anyone who was not able to watch the show and would like to know who won what.
