    The best player of the year

    I create this post in order to gather the information about the best hockey players in different countries that were claimed by media or another official(or not) national organizations.

    I think it could be very interesting, so please post yours topics under this thread.

    I'll start it with Belarus(of course :) ) and hope that you will continue that as well with your best national players.

    The British Player of the Year Award

    Every year the British Ice Hockey Writers Association (www.bihwa.co.uk) announce a player of the year for the top two divisions. This is unofficially the official player of the year if that makes any sense... :D

    Note that this is the best player in the league, and not necessarily the best Brit in the league. The Brits are in bold.

    Britain's Tony Hand broke the record last season for the winning the top league's award the most times. He has now won that 3 times, but he has also won the 2nd division's award a further twice (2001-02 while at Dundee when he was also Coach of the Year) and 2003-04 while at Edinburgh). Tony Hand was the first ever British born and trained player to be drafted by the NHL (252nd in 1986 for Edmonton).

    1984-85 Dave Stoyanovich (Fife Flyers)
    1985-86 Tim Salmon (Ayr Bruins)
    1986-87 Rick Fera (Murrayfield Racers)
    1987-88 Scott Morrison (Whitley Warriors)
    1988-89 Tony Hand (Murrayfield Racers)
    1989-90 Steve Moria (Cardiff Devils)
    1990-91 Rick Brebant (Durham Wasps)
    1991-92 Dan Dorion (Nottingham Panthers)
    1992-93 Tony Hand (Murrayfield Racers)
    1993-94 Doug Smail (Fife Flyers)
    1994-95 Randy Smith (Peterborough Pirates)
    1995-96 Randy Smith (Cardiff Devils)
    1996-97 Stevie Lyle (Cardiff Devils)
    1997-98 Rob Dopson (Ayr Scottish Eagles)
    1998-99 Frank Pieterangelo (Manchester Storm)
    1999-00 Ed Courtenay (Sheffield Steelers)
    2000-01 David Longstaff (Sheffield Steelers)
    2001-02 Kevin Riehl (Belfast Giants)
    2002-03 Joel Laing (Sheffield Steelers)
    2003-04 Jason Ruff (Belfast Giants)
    2004-05 Tony Hand (Belfast Giants) and Neal Martin (Coventry Blaze)

    Only 1 English player: David Longstaff. Tony Hand is Scottish and Stevie Lyle is Welsh.

    All the others are North American. European imports haven't traditionaly been popular in this country.

    Since 92/93 there have been two awards: one for best Danish player and another for best foreign player.

    Unlike other countries, the awards are only given to players in the Danish leagues. Otherwise, Jens Nielsen (all time foreign leading scorer in Elitserien) and Heinz Ehlers (the hockey nomad, and argubly the best Danish player ever) would have received the award more often. Bo Nordby is good, but he is not that good.

    It's interesting how some nations include representatives from the NHL and others don't.

    I'm assuming the criteria of the awards differ.

    Interesting to see "Ulf Sterner" on the list.

    He was the first player European trained player to play in NHL, playing 4 games for the New York Rangers in 1965.

    Sven "Tumba" Johansson was the first European trained player to attend an NHL training camp in 1957, but never did play in the NHL.

    The first player ever drafted from Europe was Finnish left wing Tommi Salmelainen (from IFK Helsinki). Salmelainen, who never played an NHL-game, was picked 66th overall by St. Louis in 1969.

    Thanks "google".

    Sweden: Guldpucken 2005-6 went to Kenny Jönsson

    Kenny Jönsson (Rögle BK) won the prize (Guldpucken) as Sweden's best player in 2005-6. I believe that this is the first time a player from a lower division has won this prize. Kenny was a bit surprised of the honour. He was almost sure that his brother, Jörgen Jönsson - the scoring leader of the playoffs - would get it.

    Andrei Mezin is awarded again!

    So, as it was expected by most of people, Andrei Mezin won the title of Best Belorussian Hockey Player for 2006 year. It's his second title in a row and fourth in the career, more than any other Belarus player.

    Personally the best player i have ever watched play live is Jerramie Domish,
    Im a Newcastle Vipers fan and he played for the Vipers last season, but left to go to the Sheffield Steelers for the 2010-2011 season (he will be back)

    I have honestly tried to think of players better than him who i have watched playing, but i cannot think of anyone,
    His speed,stick handling and amazing goal scoring ability gives him top for me
