Welcome to the 2013 Swords and Sticks NHL Awards nomination week!!!!
What is more exciting than the Red Wedding??? Well, it's the 2013 Swords and Sticks NHL Awards, of course! In the theme of our favorite TV show, we have developed a list of distinguished and honorable awards for which we are soliciting nominations of current NHL hockey players.
Here are the rules:
- Nominations will be accepted via comment, tweet, or email between 6/7 and 6/14
- Nominations should be based on the 2013 season (including playoffs)
- The top three candidates (based on nominations) in each category will be selected for voting, which will take place 6/17 - 6/23
- Saucer reserves the right to add a fourth player to each category based on her own personal bias and crushes
- At the end of voting, Saucer reserves the right to break any ties by conducting an unannounced, completely random poll of her co-workers (I live in TEXAS so don't let this happen)
- Winners will be awarded an official certificate, a trophy, and a meet & greet with Saucer. Fine, fine. I don't want any restraining orders so we'll bypass the meet & greet. Sigh...
