It's not the Hart Trophy. It's not the Stanley Cup. But hey, Claude Giroux's taking home at least a little bit of hardware this season. He's been named the winner of the 2012 John Wanamaker Athletic Award, presented annually by the Philadelphia Sports Congress (PSC), a division of the Philadelphia Convention & Visitors Bureau.

What is this award? Since 1961, the Wanamaker Award has been presented to the athlete, team or organization that has done the most to reflect credit upon Philadelphia and to the team or sport in which they excel, according to a press release.

Sounds about right. This was a generally awful year in Philly sports, and Giroux was one of the few bright spots.
