The last NHL Awards to take place were in 2012. Thanks to the half-season lockout last season, the NHL Awards ceremony never took place and instead, the awards were announced one-by-one over the course of the Stanley Cup Final. The Awards return to Las Vegas again this year, but it doesn't appear it will feature 2012 host Will Arnett, who portrayed Brendan Shanahan in my all-time favorite NHL Awards skits (topping the Canada/USA feuds between Bobby Ryan and Ryan Getzlaf). Watch all the sketches from throughut the evening in 2012 here.
