Hot Potato Trophy
(This post was last modified: Yesterday, 12:37 PM by bbjygm.)

Somewhat piggybacking off @gordieboom's idea of a custom trophy, I'd like to introduce my own idea:

The Hot Potato

Here's how it'll work:

1. If the player in possession of the Hot Potato hits another player, the Hot Potato is transferred to that player.
The Hot Potato is attracted to weakness, and marks those who show it until they themselves show some physical strength.

2. The Hot Potato starts a season in the possession of the player in the Hot Potato's league who had the most hits in that league the previous season.
I will look at the last season's index and give the Hot Potato to the hits leader (Mike Izzy in S47 in this case). This will ensure the Hot Potato gets passed along quickly to start terrorizing the weak.

3. Should an event occur which removes the current Hot Potato possessor from the league the Hot Potato belongs to (i.e. retirement, send-down, call-up), the Hot Potato will be transferred to the most recent possessor of the Hot Potato still in the Hot Potato's league. If there are no eligible possessors to transfer the Hot Potato to, the last player to take a hit in the last game the current Hot Potato possessor played in who is not the current Hot Potato possessor themselves will inherit the Hot Potato.
This goes along with the Hot Potato's attraction to weakness: if someone leaves the league somehow, the Hot Potato goes backward up the possessor chain. If there is no one to claim it, it latches to the last person it saw get hit.

This Hot Potato award will start with the SHL only in season 48 so I can get any kinks worked out before running one Hot Potato award in each league. Perhaps I will even give prizes for records if I can afford it. I will report on the passing of the potato as often as I can and keep an index updated in this post as well as previous/index/next navigation in each individual post.

Graders, you can stop grading from here onward. The index will be updated fairly often.

First SHL Goal
7. Buffalo Stampede , Hippo Passamus 1 (Charles Walker 2, Viktor Marius 1) at 17:11


This will take some serious tracking.

Good luck!
