Chris VandeVelde won Philadelphia's Pelle Lindbergh Memorial Trophy, which goes to the team's most improved player.
The winner of the award is determined by a player vote. VandeVelde, 28, had been bouncing between the AHL and NHL for years going into the 2014-15 campaign, but he ended up playing in 72 contests with the Flyers this season. "It was pretty cool, especially that my teammates voted on it," VandeVelde said in reference to winning the trophy. "I think I came a long way from last year. I started the year down in Allentown and worked my way up. I had a pretty good season. It was a fun year and I enjoyed it." VandeVelde is set to be a free agent this summer, but he hopes to re-sign with Philadelphia. It will be interesting to see if he can secure a one-way contract after showing what he can do as a regular bottom-six forward this season. Apr 20 - 9:59 AM
