2010 Eddie Joyal Award – gm1 leaderboard update

With the first preseason game now in the books for the Kings, we have an early leader for this year’s Eddie Joyal Award.

Although both of the predicted winners, Brad Richardson and Michal Handzus (listed at 2-1 favorites), each scored a goal in the Kings victory over the Avs, it was two players completely off the board that took the early lead.

Justin Williams, who scored the final goal of the game, also picked up an assist on the game winner – giving him two points for the night.  Tying him with a pair of points was Jarret Stoll.

So, after one game, here are the leaders:

2 pts  Williams (1g, 1a)
2 pts  Stoll (2a)
1 pt    tied with one goal each: Richardson, Handzus and John Zeiler… yes, John Zeiler!

Also worth noting – two mid-packers, Alexei Ponikarovsky (listed at 4-1 odds) and Bud Holloway (6-1), both picked up assists as well.

Long shot Kevin Westgarth (19-1) didn’t pick up any points.  However, he did post five penalty minutes after his scrap with 6’6″ David Koci.

Thursday features two games, split squad affairs for the Kings and Coyotes, going on simultaneously in Phoenix and Los Angeles.  Thus, things should look a lot different after tomorrow night.

Sort of hard to imagine that by the time Friday morning gets here the Kings six-game preseason schedule will already be half over.  Seems like just yesterday things hadn’t even gotten started yet.
