The awards will officially be presented in about a half hour or so, but I did find out who won.

Mike Richards eeked out a tough contest for the Bobby Clarke Trophy as team MVP.

Kimmo Timonen won the Barry Ashbee award in a landslide as the team's best defenseman.

Danny Briere is being recognized with the Yanick Dupre Class Guy Memorial Award as the player who best illustrates character, dignity and respect for the sport both on and off the ice.

All three awards are voted on by the members of the Philadelphia chapter of the Professional Hockey Writers' Association. The first two awards are also voted on by team broadcasters.

A fourth award - the most improved player - which is voted on by the players themselves, has not been announced yet.
