Rookie Of The Year
On the ice this season, two Colorado Avalanche stars showcased skills any hockey played would be proud to boast.
Colorado coach Patrick Roy won the Adams Award, while Avalanche forward Nathan MacKinnon became the youngest player to win the Calder Trophy as the NHL’s top rookie.
The Denver Broncos on Thursday picked up the fifth year option on Von Miller’s contract.
Colorado midfielder Dillon Powers has been voted Major League Soccer’s Rookie of the Year.
Von Miller has a new nickname and a new shoe just in time for the playoffs.
Kyrie Irving of the Cleveland Cavaliers was named the 2012 Rookie of the Year, beating out another point guard Ricky Rubio of the Minnesota Timberwolves. The ascent has been rapid for the 19-year-old former New Jersey high school player from St. Patrick’s who last year, due to an injury, played just 11 games as a freshman at Duke.
