First Annual Fred Trask Photo of the Year Competition

It's been a long, hot, dry, hockeyless summer, but I think we're all seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. And to help pull us all through to the start of training camp AND to reminisce a bit about some of the great moments of the past season via Fred's amazing photography, we bring you The Photo Contest.

We picked our top 32 favorite photos from the past season, then we ranked them and created a bracket. (Click to enlarge)

So for the next few days, you can vote on which photo in each match-up will advance to Round 2. Then when those are decided, we'll start voting for Round 2 and so forth until we get to the championship.

We'll fire it up first thing tomorrow morning, with two new match-ups a day for a while. Voting will be open for two days for each individual match-up, so don't miss a vote.

May the Best Photo win! (You're all winners!!!)

Glad to see the competition - it should be fun. Fred's snapped some AWESOME shots ... this is a perfect time to take another look at his work and give him some well-deserved pats on the back.
