The Fred J. Hume Award is always interesting. What is an “unsung hero?”

 

Like on Twitter today, I’ve seen a couple people (and they were being serious) suggesting J.T. Miller. That guy’s pretty “sung” if you ask me. He’s already guaranteed one of the awards, and a serious contender for a couple others.

 

Problem is that if the player is legitimately underrated and under-appreciated, then we can’t really expect the average fan to elevate them to a “hero.”
 

They don’t sing songs about the unsung.

 

But if we could somehow acknowledge real “unsung heroes,” who fits the bill?

 

Guys like Sutter come to mind. Definitely a player that gets dragged because of his contract (plus the whole “foundational” thing with Benning). But few people realize that Sutter was one of our top-six GAR (goals above replacement) forwards this past season, and he had the largest positive impact defensively of any player not regularly lining up alongside Petey. 
 

Or what about Leivo? He’s pretty much an afterthought when most fans talk about re-signing free agents this year. But he’s been one of the team’s best play-drivers since arriving here, and last season, despite the injuries, he (like Sutter) ranked top-six in GAR among our forwards. Definitely an under-appreciated contributor.

 

Or how about Adam Gaudette? Maybe he doesn’t jump out as “unsung,” people fans love the Hockey Gaud (and for good reason). But how many fans realize just how good he was this year? I still see some people saying he’s not an effective 3C option going forward. 33 points and 0.56 points per game while playing just over 12 minutes a night? Those are some strong numbers. And his underlying profile is also very impressive. Our fourth best forward by GAR measures and one of the best net game effect profiles on the team. 
 

But if we really want to talk about “unsung,” the name that comes to mind for me is Troy Stecher. Year in and year out, Troy shows up ready for taking that next step, and promptly gets relegated to the third pairing. And year in and year out, injuries hit, and Troy gets pressed into basically first pairing duties alongside Edler (at least at evens), and he doesn’t miss a beat. Just plays effectively, whether it’s at the top or the bottom of the lineup. This past season, he’s the only Canucks Dman not named Quinn Hughes who had positive impacts across the board, when it comes to GAR measures. Even strength offence and defence, special teams, penalty differentials, whatever the category, Stecher’s on-ice impact has been positive. In total, he’s 2nd on the D, behind Hughes, in goals above replacement. Yet this is the guy that most fans seem OK with just letting walk out the door this offseason. Troy Stecher: local kid made good, one of the best human beings you could hope to meet, a player who wears his heart on his sleeve, and just gives everything each night—that’s the guy most fans seem to be OK losing? Talk about “unsung.” I know know he won’t get too many votes from Canucks fans this year, but I think Stecher has mine.

Marky MVP, Hughes most exciting and best defenseman. That's all I know for sure. Unsung could go to Stech. He played well and I think with how many fans wanted him gone don't realize how good he is. He battles hard and plays sound defense. Height watchers be damned.

Daniel & Henrik Sedin Award - B. Boeser - Very tough call between Brock, Bo, or Petey

Cyclone Taylor Trophy - J. Markstrom - Obvious IMO

Walter (Babe) Pratt Trophy - Q. Hughes - Sorry, Eddie, Hughes is that good.

Pavel Bure Award - Q. Hughes - Miller was runner up

Fred J. Hume Award - J. Leivo - My runner ups were Boeser, Tanev, and Sutter

 

Other ones are statistical awards.
