Gritty, the mascot for the Philadelphia Flyers that everyone loves to talk about, just won a big award.

The internet went crazy and made all kinds of comments when Gritty first appeared as the Flyers mascot, but he quickly made it very clear that he didn't care what people thought of him. With his crazy and fun personality, he's made headlines more times than we can count in the six months since he's been with the Flyers.

According to 6abc, as apart of the 2018-19 NHLPA Player Poll, the players voted Gritty as the best team mascot.

We know that the fans love Gritty, but it's to see that the players in the NHL love him, too. I mean what's not to love? He stands about 7 feet tall and he's orange and fuzzy.

In true Gritty fashion, he took to his Twitter account to celebrate and to brag to the other NHL mascots that he is indeed number one.
