The Vancouver Canucks season is nearing the end. In a season full of changes, ups and downs, and COVID protocols, it looks like the playoffs won’t happen in Vancouver this year.
It is also time to determine the team awards. It is an annual tradition for Canucks fans to vote for four out of the seven awards. They are the Cyclone Taylor Trophy for the Most Valuable Player, Pavel Bure Most Exciting Player Award, Walter “Babe” Pratt Trophy for the Best Canucks Defenceman and the Fred J. Hume Award for Unsung Hero.
You can cast a vote yourself here. Voting is open until 11:59 Pacific Time on April 26.
As you read the title of this article, we will be discussing the Unsung Hero award. There are a bunch of players to choose from. The Unsung Hero is a player that doesn’t get enough recognition for their contributions on the ice. Tyler Motte was the winner of the Fred J. Hume Award last season. Over the next week, myself, Zaahid Lalani or any of our great contributors will write about the rest of the awards.
Let’s go over three players that could make the case for the Canucks Unsung Hero. Of course, you don’t have to agree and you can vote for a player not listed in this article. However, I think these three make the strongest cases.
