Mr. Video Game Ryan Kesler is in some familiar company again. Last year Kesler, along with Mike Richards and Pavel Datsyuk, were nominated for the Selke, given to the forward who best excels in the defensive aspects of the game. Datsyuk eventually won it, his second year winning the award.
Kesler has been nominated again for the 2009-2010 season along with Datsyuk and Jordan Staal. As I'm sure it will come as a shock to no one, Vancouver has never had a player win the Selke. But, hey, they never had an Art Ross winner either until this season.
Congrats Kes. Slap the 'C' on this guy anytime.
