Imagine if Heddy won the Norris, Kuch won the Ross/Hart, Vasy won the Vezina AND we won the cup. What a special season this would be if all of those things happen!

Heddy should win.

Go bolts⚡

Heddy should win it this year for sure!

Way to go Heddy

This is his year for sure

Let's go Heddy ! ⚡💪 GO BOLTS GO ! ⚡

Congrats, Heddy! And GO BOLTS!!! You can do it this year!!

Hedman gets my vote.

Heddy!!! <3 <3 <3

He should win this one - hands down! Better stats than either. More points, more goals and better plus/minus.

Major accomplishments by our guys this season, as well as how well the team has played this year. They are all superstars. Congrats to Heddy on this honor.

No doubt he will win it this year. Should have won it last year but Burns decided to score 29 goals which I think is the only reason why they gave it to him. This is Heddy’s year for sure !

It all you Hedman!

Jeremy Speak

Against those two... yea, he’s for sure winning

Hedman is the completest Defender in the world.!! I am from Germany and a defender too and he is in all parts in the game a role model for me. It was a big pleasure to watched him at the WC in Cologne. Go Bolts⚡ Go Hedman.!!⚡

This guy. Absolute monster. To know this team by number, name and what line they're on is all undone by the fact that he's out there with everyone. How many guys on a hockey team can play with EVERY other player and make a huge impact? Unreal.

Hedman deserves to win

Love this guy!

Very deserving!! You've got this!! ⚡💛 GO BOLTS

Hedman is awesome! There’s comfort in knowing this guy is on in the ice! This well deserved...I sure hope he gets it!!!! ⚡️💙⚡️Go Bolts!

Congrats. Go Victor!

Why is this being posted after Game 4?

My thoughts exactly Puckie Brewster. Apparently they are in denial about us being up 3 games to 1.

It's Heartworm Awareness Month. Let's bust a few myths ...

🚫Heartworms are caused by fleas - FALSE! Heartworms happen when an infected mosquito bites your pet. Flea treatment alone will not protect your pet from heartworms.

🚫Heartworms can be cured with dewormer - FALSE! Heartworms live in heart, lungs and blood vessels of your pet. They can grow to be 12 inches long. Prevention is key.

🚫Heartworm-positive dogs cannot be adopted - FALSE! At JHS, many families adopt dogs who are heartworm positive and JHS pays for the treatment. This way dogs can recover in loving homes and get a second leash on life. (Fun fact - you can purchase discounted heartworm prevention from JHS when you adopt, too!)

🚫Heartworms are #NBD (no big deal) - FALSE! Heartworm disease left untreated is fatal.

Remember - heartworm disease IS preventable. Keep your pets safe and on prevention. Just one pill a month! Share this information with a friend so pets everywhere can stay safe. ❤️

Starsky had heartworms when I adopted him from JHS. With all the help from JHS to get him treated and taken care of, He's almost a year past all those problems. :)

We got Bella from JHS 3 years ago. she had heartworms but was cleared up before we got her. All we do is give her heartguard once a month and the vet does the heartworm test once a year which is always negative.

Another favorite: “my dog doesn’t go outside/only goes out to potty, he can’t get heartworms.”
