The votes are in, and the big winner of the first player of the month award in the Ligue Fédérale des As is none other than Martin Desjardins of the Bifteck Avengers. His 14 points, including 10 assists, put him ahead in two statistical categories, and his determination and desire to win make Marty a great choice. His prize is a the president's special homemade shepherd's pie, custom-made gluten-free to match Marty's diet.
Obviously points aren't the only measure to use when you select your chosen player of the month, otherwise we will only have a few players eligible over the course of the year. Sportsmanship, league involvement, hard work, good humour, or just being a gentleman on or off the ice are other qualities players should consider when making their selection.
