New Name For Hart Memorial Trophy ?

The NHLFA is actively lobbying the National Hockey League (NHL) in an attempt to have the Hart Memorial Trophy renamed the Gordie Howe Trophy.
The Hart Trophy is awarded annually to the NHL “player judged most valuable to his team”. Since 1924, the trophy has been awarded to 54 different players, including six times to Gordie Howe, second only to Wayne Gretzky who won the trophy a record nine times.
The NHL community owes an enormous debt to Gordie Howe. Mr. Hockey, now 85 years old, was instrumental in building the game for today’s generation of owners, players and executives. During a long, successful career spanning five decades, Gordie was the game’s marquee player. Away from the rink, Gordie has always been a model ambassador for the sport.
The NHLFA is encouraging hockey fans to join a social media campaign to show their support for this change. Please “follow” our Facebook page ( or “like” our Twitter account (

The NHLFA would like to encourage your hockey loving family, friends and colleagues to support this campaign.

About B.Pettit

Lead Journalist - Owner - Editor I developed PensFans4Ever back when the Penguins first came to Wilkes-Barre. It was started to keep the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins Fans along with the Pittsburgh Penguin Fans up to date with happenings as far as who is up and who is down. We Started out as just a message board where we would post news and information and other fans would post their feelings and any information they had. We then turned into a dot com and started making a true web site, at first it was just news, we incorporated a message board into the site. By the third year we added a chat feature. This enables the fans to gather in a live chat room during games that they can’t be at. We try to make it as informative as possible. Since everything that has happened to us we have turned our site into a blog but keeping with what we started out to do not just giving you our thoughts and interpretations we incorporate official team news and press releases.
