This just in from the NHL:

The stars of the National Hockey League will come together with celebrities from music, stage and screen for a celebration of hockey at the 2012 NHL Awards™ at the Encore Theater at the Wynn Las Vegas on Wednesday, June 20. The 2012 NHL Awards will be broadcast live at 7 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network in the United States and CBC in Canada.

Sports broadcaster Erin Andrews, Kevin Connolly (“Entourage”), Colin Hanks (“The Good Guys,” “Dexter”), Joshua Jackson (“Fringe”), Cory Monteith (“Glee”), Matthew Perry (“Go On,” “Friends”), Vince Vaughn (“The Watch,” “Wedding Crashers,” “The Break-Up”) and Michael Vartan (“Hawthorne,” “Alias”) – all hockey fans – are scheduled to serve as presenters to honor the sport’s best. The broadcast also will feature special appearances by actors Will Arnett (“Up All Night,” “Arrested Development”) and Tracy Morgan (“30 Rock”) and director/writer/actor Kevin Smith (“Clerks,” “Red State”).

Overall not a bad cast of celebrities, even though Connolly played the insufferable E in Entourage. Still no idea how that wet blanket scored Sloan.

    I’d be surprised it took them this long to pin down the date and time, but trying to find a date that worked with Nickelback’s grueling road tour was probably a challenge.

    I really could care less WHO is presenting, so long as they can learn how to pronounce the three names they have to read off the teleprompter. (Martin St. Louis anyone?)

    This awards show has gone downhill so badly since it was moved out of Toronto. Embarrassing.

    Oh, and I think Michael Vartan was in Alias.

    The fact that they listed “Fringe” next to Joshua Jackson and not “The Mighty Ducks” is a disgrace.
