Announcing the ZHL Awards

Post by Kyle » Thu Sep 11, 2014 3:36 pm

The ZHL Awards will be presented in a short program following the conclusion of the Tassadar Cup (times TBD). Voting on most awards will take place via secret ballot during the final week of the regular season. Finalists for these awards will be announced prior to the Tassadar Cup Playoffs, but winners will not be announced until the ZHL Awards show. Some awards will be determined based entirely on statistics and won't require a vote. Voting for the Zoranis Trophy, similar to the Conn Smythe in the NHL, will be conducted immediately following the conclusion of the Tassadar Cup Final, during the ZHL Awards program, in the Twitch chat. The full list of Awards is as follows.

Team Awards

Tassadar Cup - Awarded to the ZHL playoff champion.
Artanis Cup - Awarded to the Probe League playoff champion.
Executor’s Trophy - Awarded to the ZHL team finishing the regular season with the best overall record (based on points).
Adun Trophy - Awarded to the Probe League team finishing the regular season with the best overall record (based on points).

Individual Awards

*Fenix Memorial Trophy - Awarded to the ZHL’s most valuable player in the regular season
*Colossus Trophy - Awarded to the ZHL’s top goaltender of the regular season.
Mertick the Mauler Trophy - Awarded to the player who leads the ZHL in total points at the end of the regular season.
*Aldrion Trophy - Awarded to the player who demonstrates the greatest defensive ability throughout the regular season.
**Zoranis Trophy - Awarded to the most valuable player for his team in the playoffs.
***Jim Raynor Award - Awarded to the ZHL owner (or GM) adjudged to have contributed the most to his team’s success.
Minos the Malevolent Trophy - Awarded to the top goal scorer in the regular season.
*Darsiris Trophy - Awarded to the Probe League player (appeared in less than 4 ZHL games) voted most likely to be on a ZHL starting lineup next season.
Immortal Trophy - Awarded to the goaltender, who faced at least 1 shot in net in at least 4 games, with the lowest Goals Against Average in the regular season.

**Determined by vote in the Twitch chat following the conclusion of the Tassadar Cup Final
***Determined by secret ballot amongst the owners (or GMs) of ZHL teams and league officials, conducted through the last week of the season

Awesome! I would have the criteria for the last goalie award to having faced something like 140 shots during the season (10 shots per game for 14 games) -- there are like 12+ goalies that would meet that criteria but it'll stop people like teroh from qualifying from this award.

You are. After 5 or 6 games in, the ratio for projecting the rest of the season is 2.8 or 2.33

By that amount, the following would be eligible for the goalie award (projecting out)

CountryKen
Cafca
Krazymen
Kholin
Cherry
Strawberry
TK
BobbyO (wouldn't if he isn't goalie obviously)
Perplex
(Gandalf and Director if they start more games in 2nd half)

The concept for that award's requirement is based on the William M. Jennings Trophy, which is awarded to the NHL goalie appearing in at least 25 games with the least goals against. I figured GAA would be a more forgiving statistic to use, and 4 games in a 14 game season is roughly proportionate to 25 games in an 82 game season. Requiring that they face at least 1 shot in a game prevents accidental goaltenders (ex: goalie forgot to opt in, so somebody else went in net for a few seconds) from getting the award.

That said, I'm not opposed to considering a minimum shots against requirement instead. I just figure, if your team's not letting a lot of shots get through to you, you should still be eligible.
