Phoenix Coyotes create wrestling belt for game MVPs
By QMI Agency
The Phoenix Coyotes have their own championship title. Can the Stanley Cup be next on the list?
Several Coyotes players have come up with a new wrestling-inspired belt to award to the teammate they consider to be the team's top player after each win.
Coyotes goaltender Jason LaBarbera, a big wrestling fan, helped come up with the design along with defenceman Keith Yandle.
"It's just something different," Yandle told the Coyotes website. "Obviously the media does a great job with picking (the three stars). Sometimes it might not be a guy who scores a goal. Sometimes it's a big blocked shot or something that changed the game."
