NHL Awards: Connor McDavid wins Hart Trophy as league MVP

NHL Awards

Will NHL awards honor Leafs, Oilers, Columbus?

The Newmarket, Ont., native is the first Oiler to win the Hart since Mark Messier in 1989-90. Hardly anybody in hockey believes it will be his last.

The Edmonton captain won the Ted Lindsay Award, given to the most outstanding player chosen in a vote by NHL Players' Association members.

McDavid, a 20-year-old second-year pro, won the Art Ross Trophy for most points with 100, and took home the Ted Lindsay Award as the players' MVP earlier in the night. He already knew he would win the Art Ross Trophy as the National Hockey League scoring champion. Riding an impressive 41-17-5 record with a 2.08 goals against average and a.931 save percentage, Bobrovsky earned his nomination for the Hart Trophy this year. The Columbus Blue Jackets goalie won the second Vezina Trophy of his career.

"I'm so proud to be in Edmonton", McDavid said.

"I think I actually played him when I was younger, but you're not really knowing who anybody is when you're 10, 11-years-old", Matthews said.

The page has now begun to turn from Crosby and Ovechkin toward McDavid and Matthews, who were each nominated for a major National Hockey League award this season.

Brent Burns of the San Jose Sharks won his first Norris Trophy after one of the best offensive seasons for a defensemen in recent years.

The Jack Adams award for best coach also went to the Blue Jackets, with John Tortorella taking home the trophy, while Auston Matthews of the Toronto Maple Leafs won the Calder Trophy as the top rookie.

Trump lawyer defends his use of social media
Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said Mueller has support on both sides of the aisle. But so far, Sekulow's short tenure as Trump's personal defender on TV hasn't been so smooth.

Bobrovsky, who previously won the Vezina in 2013, is the first multiple-time victor since Tim Thomas of the Boston Bruins.

Calgary Flames left winger Johnny Gaudreau captured the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy, awarded "to the player adjudged to have exhibited the best type of sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with a high standard of playing ability". The new 3-on-3 NHL THREES mode introduces fast-paced, arcade-inspired action and, in Franchise Mode, the Expansion Draft feature lets fans be the first to play as the Vegas Golden Knights, or create and draft their very own 32nd NHL team from the ground up.

While Crosby didn't claim the Hart, the back-to-back Stanley Cup champion won the Richard Trophy as the NHL's top goal-scorer.

Crosby was the humble, clean-cut Canadian known to say and do the right thing; Ovechkin was brash and bold, the Russian unafraid to buck the trend.
