If you’ve been reading for a while now, you may remember that I went to the NHL Awards in Toronto last year as a seat filler. It was probably one of my favorite moments as a sports fan, and one of the most fun things to write about on the site.
Yesterday the league announced that for the next three years the NHL Awards will be held in Las Vegas. This is upsetting to say the least, as being a seatfiller for this event gets a little harder. In fact, the draw of the event was that you didn’t have to go very far to do something really cool, and that’s about gone now.
I guess it’s one and done for playing dress up in Toronto.
