Haydar Named AHL MVP

Darren Haydar, Wildcat Nation fan favorite and stand-out extraordinaire, has been named the AHL's MVP - the 2006-2007 Les Cunningham Award Winner.

His 116 points is far beyond the rest of his peer's this year and seemingly just another notch in the long belt of this hockey star.

From Hockey East Rookie of the Year, multiple All Hockey East and New England All-Stars Teams, three time Hockey East All-Star, Hockey East Tournament MVP, Hockey East Player of the Year, NCAA Player of the Year and All-American and Hobey Baker finalist, AHL All Rookie Team and Rookie of the Year 2003, and now...

AHL Player of the Year!

This list of accomplishments barely begins to define who Darren Haydar is as a person and a player. Only those who watch him game in, game out and in his interviews can begin to understand the man and what he contributes to the hockey community and beyond. Be sure to peak at the title-linked post on the AHL's site.

The Chicago Wolves will play Darren's old team, the Milwaukee Admirals tonight at 8pm EDT. The Admirals have often had the Wolves' number this year as many of Darren's old teammates are sure to know that to have a chance against the Wolves you must shut down Darren Haydar, though they have still allowed 3 goals and 10 assists to our Wildcat Nation favorite, they lead the series 5-3 - the Wolves are two and seven when Darren does not chalk up a point of which the most remarkable factor is that he has only failed to register a point in just 9 games. As an interesting note, Darren set a Wolves franchise record before ever playing for them. Can you tell me what it is?

Go 'Cats!
