SPRINGFIELD, Mass. - Chicago Wolves centre Jason Krog was named winner Friday of the Les Cunningham Award as the American Hockey League's most valuable player.
He's the second straight Wolves player to bag the prize, after teammate Darren Haydar earned the honour last year.
Krog entered the season's final weekend leading the league with 68 assists and 104 points.
He's also second with 36 goals, one off the lead, giving him a shot at becoming just the third AHL player to lead the league in all three categories in the same season.
All three totals are career-highs for the ninth-year pro.
The 32-year-old from Fernie, B.C., has points in 59 of 77 games, including 31 multi-point efforts, to pace the Wolves' league-leading offence.
