McCauley and Wilson named award finalists
Selke and Jack Adams honors tab Sharks
4/21/04 - by Mike Lee

The Sharks received a little recognition for their successes this season, after the NHL announced that forward Alyn McCauley is a finalist for the Frank J. Selke Trophy and head coach Ron Wilson a finalist for the Jack Adams Trophy. The Selke Trophy is awarded to the league's most outstanding defensive forward, and the Adams Trophy is given to the league's coach of the year.

McCauley posted single-season career highs in points (47), goals (20) and assists (27). His plus/minus of +23 was second on the Sharks this season and tied for second-highest for a single-season in franchise history.

The Frank J. Selke Trophy is an annual award "given to the forward who best excels in the defensive aspects of the game." Other finalists for the Selke Trophy include center Kris Draper of the Detroit Red Wings and center John Madden of the New Jersey Devils.

The Jack Adams Award is presented by the National Hockey League Broadcasters' Association to "the NHL coach adjudged to have contributed the most to his team's success." Other finalists include John Tortorella of the Tampa Bay Lightning and Darryl Sutter of the Calgary Flames.

Wilson and Sutter's nomination become all the more interesting, given that Wilson replaced Sutter behind the Sharks bench last season. The nomination is the second for Wilson, who also received consideration for the award in 2000 when he was head coach of the Washington Capitals.

The winners will be announced Thursday, June 10 during the 2004 NHL Awards Television Special in Toronto. The show will be broadcast in the United States on ESPN2 from 5:30 - 7 p.m., PT.
