2013 Adams Trophy Finalists

Jack Adams Award

NHL announced the finalists for the 2013 Jack Adams Award this past Friday. The Jack Adams Award is awarded annually to the NHL coach adjudged to have contributed the most to his team’s success. The winner is selected in a poll among members of the NHL Broadcasters’ Association at the end of the regular season.  This year’s finalists are Bruce Boudreau of the Anaheim Ducks, Paul MacLean of the Ottawa Senators and Joel Quenneville of the Chicago Blackhawks.

The winner will be announced during the 2013 Stanley Cup Final.

I definitely like Quenneville to win this year’s award.  He has done an impressive job in leading the Blackhawks to best record in the league this year.

2011 Jack Adams Nominees

3 May 2011 1 comment

Last week, the NHL announced the nominees for the Jack Adams Trophy as coach of the year.  They are Vancouver’s Alain Vigneault and Nashville’s Barry Trotz, and Pittsburgh’s Dan Bylsma.  NHL story is here.

All these coaches have taken their teams to new heights this year. But, Dan Bylsma will win this award due to the fact that he took a team, minus its two big superstars, to finish in a tie with Philadephia Flyer for the Atlantic Division.

The 2011 NHL Awards will be held at the Pearl Concert Theater at the Palms Hotel in Las Vegas on June 22. The ceremony will be broadcast by VERSUS in the United States and CBC in Canada.

Here is current list of award winners:

President’s Trophy (most points by team) – Vancouver Canucks

Art Ross Trophy (scoring leader)  – Daniel Sedin, Vancouver Canucks

2010 Adams Award Nominees

28 April 2010 Leave a comment

NHL.com announced the nominees for the Jack Adams Award.  The Jack Adams Award  is presented annually by the National Hockey League Broadcasters’ Association to “the NHL coach adjudged to have contributed the most to his team’s success.”  The winner is selected by a poll among members of the NHL Broadcasters’ Association at the end of the regular season. This year all the finalists for first time nominees.  They are Joe Sacco of Colorado, Dave Tippett of Phoenix and Barry Trotz of Nashville.  Check out the NHL.com article for bios on this year’s nominees.

I have to say that Joe Sacco and Dave Tippett have done a great job to get their teams to the playoffs this year.  So, Mr Tippett would be my first choice.  On short notice and with little expectations, he guided this team to number 4 seed in the Western Conference.

The winner will be announced at the NHL Awards Show on June 23 in Las Vegas.
