Jack Adams Award

Peter Laviolette wins the Jack Adams Award from Editor In Leaf – and is the only repeat winner in comparison to the mid-season awards.

Laviolette turned a horrendous Nashville Predator team on dime and cruised into the playoffs as one of the top teams in the Western Conference. Meanwhile in Philadelphia, Craig Berube was just fired.

Paul Maurice (WPG), Alain Vingeault (NYR) and Bob Hartley (CGY) received first place votes in addition to Laviolette.

Mid-Season Winner: Peter Laviolette
