This Amelnykan Life: The First Annual Amelnykan Awards!

Join us as we revisit the most memorable moments of this exceptionally strange season!

The 2021 Ottawa Senators season has ended, and Poppy and Tim Stützle are finally in the same country! Join us as we revisit the most memorable moments of this exceptionally strange season, from the Zub goal that sparked the comeback of a lifetime, to Chabot hugging Tim Stützle, to Colin White’s legendary assist on a Vancouver Canucks goal!

Then, for the first time in our history, we hand out end-of-season awards, including the Jean-Gabriel Pageau award for excellence in rivalry games, and the Andrew Hammond award for the weirdest season. Finally, we wrap up the episode with a discussion about Eugene Melnyk’s hellish pandemic vacation.
