Dan Snyder Memorial Trophy to be presented April 7th

From the Free Press. I'm going to guess good ol' Jim Slater.

Quote:
-- REMEMBERING SNYDER: The Jets will be awarding the Dan Snyder Memorial Trophy to one of their own at their final home game against the Tampa Bay Lightning on April 7, keeping alive one of the traditions started by the Atlanta Thrashers.

Snyder was a popular member of the Thrashers who died six days after being in a car accident in 2003, the vehicle being driven by then teammate Dany Heatley, now with the Minnesota Wild. The Thrashers honoured Snyder by instituting the trophy in his name, given to the player "who best embodies perseverance, dedication and hard work without reward or recognition so that his teammates might succeed."

The Jets have invited the Snyder family to Winnipeg for the ceremony. According to Fox Sports South, Snyder's father Graham will attend as will his son, Jake; Jake's wife, Dawn; and the couple's two boys, one of whom, Reed Daniel, got his middle name from his late uncle.

The Jets have planned to honour Snyder all along, but there's also a non-Thrashers connection to this story: Snyder won a AHL title in 2001-02 with the Chicago Wolves. And the Wolves GM was Kevin Cheveldayoff.

"Chevy was a big part of Dan's career," Graham Snyder told FS Sports this week. "I know I talked to him a number of times when Dan was playing there and I was always impressed with the way he ran his hockey team and also with just the man. As the man, I thought he was a real good guy.

"Having known a little about Winnipeg, I just knew that they'd be pretty passionate and they've certainly shown that this year. I'm very happy that they're going to choose to remember that award and continue it."

Any guesses who wins it?

Stuart seems like the favorite. Slater might have an outside chance.

I would think one of those two guys for sure.

I would give it to Stuart myself.

Slater won it in 09-10 and seems prime to win it again. But I can see Stu making a strong case as well.

Either will do the award proud, can't go wrong.

Very nice to hear.

I would say Stuart or Slater, but if I had to pick one I will say Stuart. The dedication and punishment that man puts his body through is pretty amazing. No fear. All heart.

There you go

I know this has been a crazy busy year for TNSE and things can slip through the cracks but I never had any doubt they would carry the torch.

we can debate all day whether Kovy should be honored one day and I know where i stand on that but the Dan Snyder award had to live on and this one is a no brainer and just the right thing to do!

I am thrilled I will be at that game and hope our crowd can come up with something cool and classy to chant during the game to honor Dan.

Outside shot to Thorburn?
The guy works his but off every time he's on the ice and sure doesn't get much mention.

I would like Stuie since Slates has won this already and he was just picked as our nominee for the Bill Masterton Trophy and I consider them to be the two front runners for this. I know it won't happen but it would be cool for it to go to the GST line.

Not sure why Glass wouldn't be considered for this. Have you ever seen him take a shift off?

Everyone seems to be picking grinders cause they do the role they do. I mean I don't think the award is that literal.

I'd go with Tim Stapleton. 29 and spent his career bouncign back and forth to the AHL. Worked hard all year and earned a permanent spot on teh big club. He's not the big gridning forward but he showed grit and percaverance none the less.

That is likely because it pretty well embodies the player that Dan Snyder was. Also, the description of the award is as follows, "who best embodies perseverance, dedication and hard work without reward or recognition so that his teammates might succeed."

"Without reward or recognition so that his teammates might succeed", says it all for me. I love Blake Wheeler, for example, but what he does gets him attention, recognition, etc.

This award goes to an unsung hero, in my opinion, that's how Dan played. It's a token of appreciation for those that go to the trenches for their team, but do not get the attention or credit for doing such an admirable job in a role not many would like.

My opinion, anyway.

...Which is Mark Stuart in a nutshell this year. He blocks shots with his head and is only mildly inconvenienced.

Very nice. I've had the pleasure of meeting the Snyders and they are amazing people. The youngest nephew looks exactly like Dan.

I know you guys will give them a warm welcome.

Stuart... the guy is a warrior. He was my favorite player at the beginning of the season as he showed a ton of heart. I'm looking forward to that night... unfortunately, we won't be back to see hockey again until September... or maybe they'll have another draft party in June.
