Quad City Mallards scoring leader Mickey Lang was recognized Friday in the Central Hockey League's annual survey of the Double-A circuit's players, coaches and operations staff.

In the "Best of the Best" poll, Lang was selected as the CHL's Most Underrated Player and Fastest Skater.

The CHL MVP candidate also finished in the top three in a trio of other categories, including seconds in Best Penalty Killer and Most Gentlemanly Player.

Lang also checked in third in the "Most Valuable to his team" category.

The Mallards also were voted the league's second hardest-working team. QC was voted No. 1 last season and also finished second in the 2010-11 campaign.

QC's CHL Rookie of the Year candidate Mike Hellyer also took second in the Best Rookie category.

Off the ice, the Mallards organization received style points for Best Mascot (second), Most Annoying Fans (third) and Best Logo (third).

A summary of the 50-category "Best of the Best" poll results can be found at centralhockeyleague.com.
