Chris Pronger made his presence felt in a big way during his first season with the Flyers — and the team awarded him accordingly. The 16-year veteran took home the Bobby Clarke Award as the Flyers’ most valuable player. He also snagged the Barry Ashbee Trophy as the team’s top defensemen.
Pronger is coming off one of the best statistical seasons of his career by tallying 10 goals and 45 assists in 81 games. He also leads the team in plus/minus with a plus-22 rating.
Ian Laperriere also took home two awards — the Yanick Dupre Class Guy Memorial Award and the Gene Hart Memorial Award as the player who has displayed the most heart during the season.
Matt Carle won the Pelle Lindbergh Memorial Trophy as the player most improved from the previous season. This particular award is voted on by the players.
