First off, USA Hockey is going to give Ryan Miller their Bob Johnson Award for excellence in international competition. Here’s the scoop from the Buffalo News:
Miller was named the top goaltender and most valuable player of February’s Games in Vancouver. He posted a tournament-best .946 save percentage in six games, and his 1.35 goals-against average was the lowest in U.S. Olympic history.
The award, named after the legendary coach, will be presented during USA Hockey’s annual congress to be held Thursday through June 13 in Colorado Springs, Colo.
Miller is also a finalist for the Mark Messier NHL Leadership Award, up against Sidney Crosby and Shane Doan. When you throw in his Silver Medal, and Vezina trophy candidacy (should’ve had Hart nom too), Ryan might just need to expand the trophy case.
