As for McCreary, he was NOT a favorite of mine last season. This season though, he has seemed to let teams play and call the more blatant stuff, so I think he is actually developing, so I have no problem with McCreary as a selection this year.
"This is a great event in that it recognizes the best that we have on the ice during the season, but the guys on the ice that have the hardest job and often get overlooked are the officials," said USHL President Gino Gasparini. "These four young men have proven to be the best in our league and are definitely deserving of this honor."
Great quote from Gino. I don't know if anyone can honestly agree with that.
