Okay everyone, time for some puck moving defenseman fappage. The OHL announced their "Defenseman of the Year" award and guess who took home the honors? The #9 overall pick and Boston bruins prospect Dougie Hamiltion. Now, I'm sure this is where I'm supposed to make a "Doing the Dougie" joke, but I refuse because that shit is lamesauce.
Here's what the article said:
The Ontario Hockey League today announced that Dougie Hamilton of the Niagara IceDogs is the 2011-12 recipient of the Max Kaminsky Trophy awarded to the OHL’s Most Outstanding Defenceman of the Year.
Hamilton led all OHL defencemen in scoring with 72 points in just 50 games and tied for third in the league with a plus-minus rating of plus-37. He scored 17 goals and finished tied for third overall in the league with 55 assists which included a league-high 30 assists recorded on the power play. Third in voting for this award last season, Hamilton becomes the first winner of the Max Kaminsky Trophy in IceDogs’ team history.
The future looks bright.Maybe this is the puck moving defenseman we've been looking for?
