Showered With Honors: NHL Star Corey Perry Leads Fellow Oakley Hockey Athletes at League’s Award Show in Vegas
It’s no secret. Oakley Hockey Athletes dominate the ice. It’s not all that hard, of course…being that a whole host of the NHL’s top hockey players are Oakley-equipped smashers rocking their high-tech O visors whenever they suit up for battle. So it was only fitting that some of O’s best scooped up top honors at the NHL Awards Show in Las Vegas – lead by the Anaheim Ducks’ Corey Perry, who grabbed the coveted Hart Trophy as the League’s Most Valuable Player to his team. He also claimed the Maurice Richard Award for most goals during the season. Fellow Oakley athletes Daniel Sedin (Ted Lindsay Award), Ryan Kesler (Frank J. Selke Trophy) and Nicklas Lidstrom (James Norris Memorial Trophy) all took home honors of their own.
The action is hitting an insane intensity level. With biting incidents, extra rough fouls, bad blood and some truly World-Class play, the NHL Stanley Cup Finals are raging on. After the Vancouver Canucks powered out of the gates to a 2-0 series lead with commanding victories, Boston’s strong 8-1 victory in game three has momentum shifting for a truly competitive series. Despite bitter rivals clashing head-to-head, the Vancouver Canucks and Boston Bruins have one thing in common. Both sides are packed with Oakley-equipped warriors.
Scoring Machine: O’s Anaheim Ducks Star Corey Perry Nabs Maurice "Rocket" Richard Trophy for Top NHL Goal Scorer
The Anaheim Ducks smashed their way into the playoffs. But it was Corey Perry’s own individual rippage that really swung the momentum. The O slasher’s heroic efforts and scoring during the last couple weeks of the regular season catapulted the team from a bottom of the barrel playoff position to the middle the pack. But make no mistake. He’d been doing that all season. (In his Oakley Hockey Visor, of course.) So much so that the right wing grabbed the Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy as the NHL’s top goal scorer for the 2010-11 season: the latest Duck since fellow Oakley athlete and legend Teemu Selanne took the inaugural award for his killer 1998-99 campaign.
