s25 - Potential Award Winners [WB11]


When it comes to who was the best player on the Scouts, the answer is simple - Joe Pavelski with 83 points in 77 games. Pavelski continues to be the horse of the Scouts and where he goes, so does the team. Pavelski still has two remaining with the club.

Victor Hedman has been the club's best defender this season with 36 points. Besides for the offensive numbers Hedman provides, he is also a skilled defender. Hedman is currently out of action with a lower body injury and will be sorely missed as the Scouts head into the playoffs.

This one might comes down to the wire, as both Schneider and Rinne have been solid in the crease for the Scouts this season. Schneider does have slightly better number than his counterpart, but Rinne does have the lone shutout for the Scouts this season.

The most improved player is Marcus Johansson, who went from 29 points to 52 points. It has been a season of career highs for Johansson and the Scouts ope the 25-year-old forward is not done developing into a front line player. Josef Vasicek, Devin Setogucchi, and Martin Hanzel should honourable mentioned, as each player has reached career highs or turned their season around last season.

Most Disappointing

On the farm, Alexei Cherepanov is the MVP of the team. Cherepanov has played in 72 games this season, with 33 goals and 56 points. Cherepanov has been one of the bright spots for the Cowboys this season, and has been the main goal scorer for the club this season.

On defense, Philip Larsen who also has 56 points has been the club's best defender. Larsen has not only been good on offense but has also been a good defender, and is not afraid to block a shot. Besides for Larsen, several other defenders have seen their stock in the organization increase and could be pushing for a spot with the Scouts in the coming seasons.

Top goalie is once again Al Montoya, who has been outstanding every season with Cowboys. The big question about Montoya is if he will ever join the Scouts on a permanent basis, but with both Rinne and Schneider signed to club long-term and Ilya Sorokin in the organization, it is hard seeing Montoya advancing to the Scouts.

Most improved player with the Cowboys this season has to be Michael Ferland, who has already tasted some success with the Scouts, and in a limited about  games with the Cowboys this season, has already surpassed last seasons point total. Ferland is developing into a solid middle line player in the future.
