Howard is DSBA\'s rookie of the year
DETROIT -- Red Wings goaltender Jimmy Howard has been named the 2009-10 Detroit Red Wings ‘Rookie of the Year’ by the Detroit Sports Broadcasters Association (DSBA).

Howard, 26, appeared in 63 games during the 2009-10 regular-season, finishing with 37 wins (tied 8th NHL), a 2.26 goals-against average (5th NHL), a .924 save percentage (4th NHL) and three shutouts.

“It’s a tremendous honor to be selected as the DSBA Rookie of the Year,” said Howard. “I’m very happy to be a part of the Red Wings' organization. My coaches and teammates, in particular Jim Bedard and Chris Osgood, really helped me along through my first full season in the National Hockey League. I’m already looking forward to 2010-11.”

Howard was Detroit’s first selection (second round, 64th overall) in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft. In addition to being selected as the DSBA Rookie of the Year, he is also among the three finalists for the Calder Trophy as the NHL’s Rookie of the Year. Howard will be honored by the DSBA prior to a Red Wings home game during the 2010-11 season.
 
The DSBA Rookie of the Year Award originated following the 1948-49 season. Previous winners of the award include current Red Wings Henrik Zetterberg, Pavel Datsyuk, Johan Franzen, Niklas Kronwall, Jiri Hudler, Derek Meech and Jonathan Ericsson.
