BLACK ACES HOCKEY has selected Edmonton Oilers goaltender Jussi Markkanen as Black Aces Hockey Player Of The Year. When Oilers backup netminder Ty Conklin struggled, in came Markkanen, a true Black Ace having been rated as the number 3 goalie who had not played in 2 months. Markkanen was a big reason the series went 7 games. The final could have been a 4 game blowout without him. He gave the Oilers a real chance to win game 7 with great save after great save.OK, I'll buy that!
