The NHL Awards Show

The NHL Awards are this evening and while we look forward to our Patrice of Bergeron winning another Selke, we are saddened that Cuba Gooding, Jr is sadly not hosting this year. The NHL should correct this for next year

Instead, they chose Will Arnett, Canadian and natural-born hockey fan, to host.

Can’t be worse than last year’s, can it?

Jim Rutherford (Pittsburgh Penguins), Brian MacLellan (Washington Capitals) and Jim Nill (Dallas Stars) were named as the finalists for the 2016 NHL General Manager of the Year Award

Jamie Benn, Sidney Crosby, and Patrick Kane are finalists for Hart Trophy, the player considered to be the most valuable player to his team.

Jamie Benn, Braden Holtby, Patrick Kane named Ted Lindsay Award finalists. The Ted Lindsay Award is given to the player voted as “Most Outstanding Player” as voted by fellow NHLPA Members.

Your finalists for the Jack Adams Award are Lindy Ruff of the Stars, Barry Trotz of the Capitals, and Gerard Gallant of the Panthers. Essentially this is the Coach of the Year Award.

Patrice Bergeron, Ryan Kesler, and Anze Kopitar were named Frank J Selke finalists for the forward who demonstrates the most skill in the defensive skills of the game.

Tough choice ahead for the Masterton Trophy. According to Wikipedia, this goes to the players who “who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to ice hockey”. The Finalsists are Jaromir Jagr, Mats Zuccarello, and Pascal Dupuis.

The Mark Messier NHL Leadership Award for the player who demonstrates leadership on the ice and in the community goes to one of these three: Alexander Ovechkin, John Tavares, or Shea Weber.
