I would say that Wednesday was a pretty good day for American hockey players.

During the day, Brian Leetch and Cammi Granato were honored with the Lester Patrick Award for their service to the sport in the United States. I really can't say enough good things about Leetch and Granato. Both were great competitors that always handled themselves with grace and class.
