Voting ends on Monday, Nov. 23 at 3:00 p.m. MT, so be sure to cast your ballot today!

Wilson’s First Goal – 11/17 @ Calgary
Following a nice display of cycling behind the Calgary net and a scramble just outside Miikka Kiprusoff’s crease, defenseman Ryan Wilson spotted a loose puck, pinched in and threw a backhander into the net for his first career NHL goal.


McLeod’s One-Timer – 11/17 @ Calgary
With Calgary making a line change, Avalanche defenseman Ryan Wilson threw a pass from his own end all the way down to Paul Stastny at the opposite blue line. After gaining the offensive zone, Stastny fed a pass into the middle, where a cutting Cody McLeod one-timed it past Miikka Kiprusoff.


Hejduk Adjusts – 11/18 @ Edmonton
The Avalanche and Oilers were scoreless until Milan Hejduk netted this four-on-four tally. From the blue line, defenseman Tom Preissing threw a pass to Hejduk, who was right in front of Edmonton’s net. With his back to the goal, the veteran made a quick adjustment and essentially passed the puck to himself in a better position before netting his ninth goal of the season.
