I tend to agree with you, and I think most voters will.  It is very close, but Pinto's goal totals and the fact that he plays center very effectively puts him over the top.  How many times this year has he taken and won a key defensive zone draw?  Pretty rare to trust a freshman like that.

Pinto is also 2nd in faceoff percentage in the league. But Paul Washe cheats.

Every center cheats on the draw...it’s kind of like offensive line holding in the NFL...to what degree

What does he do specifically...I'm just asking for the uninformed...like me.

I haven’t watched Washe specifically, but generally speaking it’s about not standing square, keeping your stick slightly above the ice, putting your stick into the red dot, not honoring the attacking player first stick on ice rule, etc.

Pinto makes the NCHC all rookie team. Schloss tweeted that two voters left him off their ballots entirely.

Why the hate? or is it envy. The kid is going to be in the NHL someday, hopefully not too soon.

Omaha coach Gabinet is for sure one of them.

Schloss tweeted that Pinto lead NCHC rookies goals, points, ppg, gwg, sog, faceoff wins, and faceoff win percentage. Also first among rookie forwards in +/-. Whoever didn't have him on their ballots should be embarrassed.

Are the ballot secret?

 

I couldn't find it anywhere. I don't know if Schloss knows or not.

Brink of DU actually had a higher ppg average than Pinto in NCHC games.

He was on everyone's ballot, as he should be. Pinto should've also been on everyone's ballot.

But does ppg stand for points per game or power play goals? ???

Well the stat Schloss posted must be power play goals...

Brink - 17 pts in 16 league games (.94 points per game)

Pinto - 19 points in 23 league games (.83 points per game)

I was assuming ppg to mean power play goals

Would guess Gabinet and the Omaha gang would likely have left Pinto off their ballots.

Dave Berger in a reply to Schloss said both voters were from Omaha.

Not sure if that's true or not, but looking at some of the ballots over the years there have been a few tragedies for a couple different players.
