With Summer officially here, we're down to just baseball season, the Women's World Cup, and awards/draft season. We're pretty stoked for the draft, thanks to the coverage our very own Kyle McIlmurray will be providing from Florida, but there's no soccer on tonight and the Tigers game in Cleveland will be over by the time this shindig starts.
Pavel Datsyuk is the only Wings' player up for an award, as he's a default Lady Byng finalist. I think Anze Kopitar is going to win it, but that's one of those cool-to-be-nominated awards anyway.
