I got my ballot for WCHA awards, including all-conference teams, the all-rookie team, rookie of the year and player of the year. I'll disclose my votes next week, but there are going to be some tough choices, especially player of the year. Seven players have been nominated by their teams: CC goalie Richard Bachman, Denver goalie Marc Cheverie, Minnesota forward Ryan Stoa, Duluth goalie Alex Stalock, UND defenseman Chay Chenoway, St. Cloud forward Ryan Lasch and Wisconsin defenseman Jamie McBain.
Is there an obvious winner? Can you go wrong? I'll be doing my research. What do you think?
