02:15 PM ET 05.24 | Las Vegas will once again host the National Hockey League's award show in 2014, but due to the lockout, we will see an odd arrangement for the ceremonies this season. The 2013 NHL Awards will take place over two nights in the city hosting Games 1 and 2 of the 2013 Stanley Cup Final. Part one of the show will take place the day before Game 2 of the Final and feature the presentation of the less heralded trophies (Masterton Trophy, Selke Trophy, Adams Award, King Clancy Trophy, Lady Byng Trophy, Mark Messier Leadership Award, NHL Foundation Player Award and the NHL GM of the Year Award). The NHL Network will produce the ceremony. Part two will take place an hour prior to Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final, and feature more of the prime, important awards given out (Calder Trophy, Hart Trophy, Norris Trophy, Ted Lindsay Award and Vezina Trophy). NBC and CBC will co-produce the show. The NHL Awards had been in Las Vegas since 2008. The lockout, however, forced the NHL to improvise, as it had little time between the end of the Stanley Cup Final, the NHL Draft and the start of free agency. As previously mentioned, the NHL Awards return to Vegas in 2014.

If they hold it in a corner he won't show up.

Kessel was last seen in NYC trying to teach Rick Nash how to play hockey like a man.

I don't know if Nash has it as much as people think, or its how they play in NY.....I dunno, but there has been many Astra grace the ice in Ny in a Rangers jersey, and only a few have been successful when there..

Gaborik?
Richards?
Nash?
And that's just recently. I feel for the King. When a team has the goaltending like the Rangers do, it boggles my mind how so many stars cannot show up....no matter the year, all the while King Henrik proves why he is at the top of the pile...

Two nights, two nights, won't be just any nights... (to be sung badly, in a squeaky, failing-trailing voice, accompanied by stamping little feet-ies).
