Will Arnett to host NHL Awards, dates for award nominees unveiled

It's not a trick, or an illusion.

In a stunning turn of events, the NHL made a great decision. Will Arnett is set to host the NHL Awards in Las Vegas on June 22 and the NHL revealed the dates the award nominees will be announced.

Arnett is a great choice for host. He's funny, people have heard of him and he's not WIll Wheaton. God, can you imagine? I'm having a mini-nightmare just thinking about it. Anyway, it's also an improvement over Rob Riggle, whose name I know because I just Googled it. He's from that show you've maybe seen before. You know the one.

How much damage could Arnett possibly do?

Well...there's always money in the banana stand. I hear Nate Silver thinks that's a great hockey market.
