Update: James Reimer wins in a landslide!

It was Michal Neuvirth in Q1, then Patrick Marleau in Q2. Sidney Crosby burst onto the scene in Q3. So who’s our fourth and final quarterly of 2011-2012?

A look at the nominees:

C Sidney Crosby, West Virginia River Rats
17gp, 9g, 20a, 29pts
It wasn’t quite the torrid pace he set last quarter, but Crosby’s 29 points put him in third for scoring in Q4 and helped West Virginia shore up the #2 seed.

RW Jarome Iginla, Portland Winterhawks
18gp, 17g, 12a, 29p
Will Iginla ever slow down? He almost hit 60 goals this year, and his 17 goals in 18 games this quarter was a big reason why. He was tied for the quarterly goal-scoring lead with Ryan Kesler.

G James Reimer, Portland Winterhawks
17gp, 14-2-1, 2.35, .920
To put Reimer’s excellent quarter in perspective – on the season, Portland’s other two goalies boast save percentages of .885 and .877. Portland was the best team in Q4 on the back of the rookie netminder.

G Tim Thomas, Sterling Eagles
15gp, 8-3-4, 1.62, .937
The stingy Eagles were once again led by the ageless Thomas. Sterling allowed just 29 goals in 18 games in Q4.

C Jonathan Toews, Vancouver Night Train
18gp, 12g, 18a, 30pts
The Night Train’s conference crown was by no means a guarantee heading into the quarter. Toews would lead the entire league in Q4 scoring while winning 65% of his faceoffs.
