Dan Kelly Albany Devils' Man of the Year
The AHL announced the 30 recipients of the IOA/American Specialty AHL Man of the Year, one for each team in the league. From the list of those recipients, the league will choose the winner of the 2013-14 Yanick Dupré Memorial Award as the league's Man of the Year.
Fourth-year defenseman Dan Kelly was named the Man of the Year by the Albany Devils for his work in the community.
"It’s a great honor," Kelly said Thursday, "especially when you’ve got guys like Pels [Rod Pelley] and [Chris] McKelvie who go above and beyond, doing things in the community. It’s something I enjoy, and to get a little recognition for it is nice."
