Bryan Little of the Winnipeg Jets seems to have quite the trophy display as he has earned himself a vast number of awards throughout his amateur career with close to 20 to his name (in the OHL alone). Even though these may not be as well known, some of the more impressive-sounding awards are among the OHL Eastern Conference Coach’s Poll for “Smartest Player” (2003-2004, 2004-2005); “Hardest Worker” (2004-2005, 2005-2006) and “Most Dangerous in the Goal Area” (2004-2005, 2005-2006, 2006-2007) to name a few. I would say that is one accomplished player who definitely had aspirations of making his love of hockey into a career.
- set a new career high in assists (21) on 03/29/2010 versus the Carolina Hurricanes

Here’s a kid fresh out of junior, making his debut in the middle of the playoffs and he played like he’d been there all season.
