Justin Kinnunen voted "Fastest Skater"

Brahmas represented in the CHL's Best of the Best

Fans, barn recognized in league's annual poll

Every year, the Central Hockey League sends out ballots to players, coaches and broadcasters looking for the best of the best, on and off the ice. Now, these kinds of things don't mean a whole hill of pucks in the grand scheme of things but it's nice to be recognized in any manner. Here's a run down of the categories in which the Brahmas were listed in the top three.

Justin Kinnunen was voted the Fastest Skater, with Colorado's Riley Nelson and Corpus Christi's Ryan Garbutt coming in second and third.

Brett Jaeger came in third in the Best Goaltender category behind Odessa's Joel Martin and Rapid City's Danny Battochio.

Craig Minard came in second as Most Gentlemanly player, behind Colorado's Riley Nelson and ahead of Corpus Christi's Justin Quenneville.

James Hiebert took second as the Most Annoying Player, behind Missouri's Karl Sellan and ahead of Arizona's Konrad Reeder.

The NYTEX crowd took second place as the Most Annoying Fans (give yourselves a pat on the back, Rowdies) behind the Wichita fans and ahead of the Bossier-Shreveport fans.

The NYTEX Sports Centre took second place as Toughest Building To Win In, behind the Budweiser Events Center (Colorado) and ahead of the Rushmore Plaza Arena (Rapid City). Given the difficulties faced by the visiting Colorado and Rapid City teams, that might be a debatable point.

The Brahmas were in second place as Hardest Working Team, behind the Bossier-Shreveport Mudbugs and ahead of the Odessa Jackalopes.

Finally, the Texas Brahmas Fan Club came in second as Best Booster Club, behind the Boilers Booster Club (Bossier-Shreveport) and the Jack Pack (Odessa).
