Edmonton's Connor McDavid wins first Hart Trophy as NHL MVP

Edmonton's Connor McDavid wins first Hart Trophy as NHL MVP”

Edmonton Oilers forward Connor McDavid was named the recipient of the Ted Lindsay Award, which is the league's best player as voted on by the NHLPA.

The latest installment in the long-running franchise, which all started with "NHL Hockey" for the Sega Mega Drive in 1991, was officially unveiled at the 2017 NHL Awards. The league also revealed the results of the Golden Knights' expansion draft to an arena filled with fans of the league's 31st franchise. The 20-year-old Edmonton Oilers center won the Hart Trophy on Wednesday night, being named NHL MVP for the first time in his young career, and he picked up two other awards Wednesday as the league handed out its end-of-season honors. The former No. 1 pick beat out fellow finalists Sergei Bobrovsky of Columbus and Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby.

"To see the trophies up close and personal, touch them, get your picture with them, it makes it a little more real", McDavid said (via the Associated Press).

Matthews was the first Maple Leafs player to win the Calder since 1966 when it was awarded to Brit Selby.

Ottawa goaltender Craig Anderson received the Bill Masterton Trophy for perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey. The 36-year-old American took a leave of absence during parts of this past season to be with his wife who was battling throat cancer.

Calgary Flames Johnny Gaudrea was awarded the Lady Byng Trophy for his sportsmanlike play beating out Minnesota's Mikael Granlund and St. Louis' Vladimir Tarasenko.

In his first full season in Columbus, Tortorella led the Blue Jackets' revival for their best record ever and their first playoff appearance since 2014, even leading the overall National Hockey League standings earlier in the season. Bergeron also claimed the trophy in 2012, 2014 and 2015.

Selke Trophy (awarded to the best defensive forward): Ryan Kesler, Patrice Bergeron, Mikko Koivu. "Not only him on the ice, but also him off the ice as a role model, as a person, I've always respected him for that".

Burns beat out Ottawa's Erik Karlsson, who scored 71 points.

Poile's work helped the Predators earn a postseason berth for the 10th time in 13 seasons and advance to the Stanley Cup Final for the first time.

"That's the way I play the game", Burns said. Players can either select the Golden Nights, or create their own 32nd team and conduct the draft. "For myself, when the Coyotes moved (to Phoenix), that's how I got into hockey". The Arizona-raised center didn't miss a game while propelling Toronto back into the Stanley Cup playoffs for just the second time since 2004. The Penguins visit the Chicago Blackhawks on October 5 in a matchup of the only teams to win the Cup three times in the salary-cap era. Nashville celebrates the longest playoff run in franchise history at home October 10 against the Philadelphia Flyers.

NHL THREES: This game mode is similar to the new EASHL mode listed above but will have a more arcade style of play.

The back-to-back Presidents' Trophy-winning Washington Capitals open their season at Ottawa on October 5 and host the Montreal Canadiens in their home opener October 7. Watching McDavid play this year was awesome as a hockey fan, here's hoping his career doesn't fall into the same game cover curse that many other athletes have dealt with over the years. Marchessault had 30 goals and 51 points for the Panthers last season.

Not having him healthy and able to play could have a significant impact on the franchise given his contract situation.
