Corey Perry said he came to the NHL Awards in Las Vegas just to have fun with nearly three dozen family and friends, not expecting much despite his 50-goal season.
Corey Perry crashed the Sedins' NHL MVP party.
Green even got some early Norris Trophy publicity from CSN analyst Alan May, who mentioned the defenseman as a candidate given his all-around game, writing: "He's all grown up & ready to be a champion."
The seven-time Norris Trophy winner said McCrimmon showed him the ropes in the NHL.
