Locke voted AHL MVP
April 8, 2011


SPRINGFIELD, Mass. Ö The American Hockey League announced today that center Corey Locke of the Binghamton Senators has been named the winner of the Les Cunningham Award as the AHLís most valuable player for the 2010-11 season, as voted by coaches, players and members of the media in each of the leagueís 30 cities.

Locke leads the American Hockey League with 65 assists and 86 points for Binghamton this season, establishing career highs in assists, points and plus/minus (plus-13) while helping the Senators to their first Calder Cup Playoff berth in six years. Locke, who has recorded a point in 54 of his 69 games played for Binghamton, will finish as his teamís scoring leader for the fourth consecutive season and is poised to claim his first AHL scoring title. Locke has put together seven different scoring streaks of at least five games apiece, including a 12-game run from Oct. 23 to Nov. 20.

Woot!

Brust probably should have gotten this, but Locke is a very good pick.

It's sad that Locke doesn't have even average size (6'0), because he has awesome hands.

Harbinger 04-08-2011 01:43 PM

I wonder if he'll ever establish himself in the big league.

I'm amazed at how the puck finds his stick. He must have a magnet in there because he always seems to come away with the puck and make an amazing pass. What he lacks in size, he makes up for in skill and talent.

Way to go, Corey! Keep doing your thing!

Congrats!

i think it's now safe to say he is a career ahler. Nothing to be ashamed of, he is making good money doing his thing down there. It's clear he is out of his league and the NHL level. Everyone wanted to see him get a shot this year, BMurray gave him a chance to play, he just doesn't have the speed or size to play in the show.

Congrats to him!

He wasnt terrible, its just some of his tricks wont work on NHL Vets as they do AHL who-evers.

:handclap:Good for him but I thought Brust would have won it but I am glad that someone in the B-Sens organization won it. Also nice to see Bass win his humanitarian award.

Glad for Locke, wish he'd get a chance in the NHL. Sick of armchair GMs saying he has no chance in the NHL because of his size. Guy's played 9 games in the NHL, all on lower lines. Give him a chance.
