A few more ECHL awards were handed out today and Monday, none for the Reign, but just to get caught up:
• Mark Derlago of the Idaho Steelheads is the recipient of the Reebok Plus Performer of the Year award after finishing with a plus-minus rating of +34 in 60 games. (The Reign’s plus-minus leader, for what it’s worth, is Jon Francisco at plus-12).
• Justin Donati of the Elmira Jackals has been named CCM Rookie of the Year and the recipient of the John A. Daley Memorial Trophy. Richard Bachman of the Idaho Steelheads was the runner-up for the award.
• Derek Laxdal of the Idaho Steelheads is the 2009-10 recipient of the John Brophy Award as the league’s Coach of the Year. Laxdal was among the National Conference coaches behind the bench at the 2010 ECHL All-Star Game in Ontario. Cail MacLean of the South Carolina Stingrays was the runner-up.
• The winner of the Defenseman of the Year award will be announced on Wednesday.
