Third Quarter MVP: Vote Now!

In Special Features on March 26, 2012 at 2:57 pm

It’s that time again? Who will join Patrick Marleau and Michal Neuvirth as quarterly MVPs?

A look at the nominees:

C Sidney Crosby, West Virginia River Rats
24gp, 19g, 27a, 46pts
Crosby’s much-anticipated season debut delivered in spades. Crosby led all scorers on the quarter by a healthy margin and led the Rats to a sterling 15-5-4 record.

C Ryan Kesler, El Dorado Lynx
24gp, 15g, 19a, 34pts
The Lynx had a glorious 16-3-5 quarter, thanks in large part to Kesler, who led El Dorado in scoring and boasted a great +15.

RW Cory Perry, West Virginia River Rats
24gp, 23g, 14a, 37pts
A beneficiary of Crosby’s comeback? Maybe. But Perry was West Virginia’s leading scorer before the quarter began and is now closing in on 50 goals.

G Tim Thomas, Sterling Eagles
20gp, 8-8-4, 1.88, .940, 4 SO.
The Eagles are having a hard time scoring. That they’re still in the running is thanks to Thomas, who had 4 shutouts on the quarter.

C Jonathan Toews, Vancouver Night Train
24gp, 9g, 25a, 34pts
The Night Train had 16 wins on the quarter — tops in the Sawchuk. Toews is the biggest reason why, considering Pekka Rinne’s extremely dodgy performance.
