NHL Award Predictions

Due to the shortened 48 game season, we are already a quarter of the way through the NHL season. The Blackhawks have shown their prowess, blowing past their opponents to an impressive 12-0-3 record and to the top of the standings. Other teams have been pleasant surprises, such as the second place Montreal Canadiens, who finished in last place in the Eastern Conference last year. Other teams have been unfortunate and gotten off to a slow start, such as the New York Rangers, who have just begun to find their game. Now, with twelves games down, it’s time for the Sentinel to hand out its early NHL awards.

Hart Trophy (Most Valuable Player): Due to the electrifying play and the early success of the Chicago Blackhawks, right-winger Patrick Kane is awarded the Hart Trophy. Tallying 9 goals and 10 assists in 12 games played, Patrick Kane is a huge reason why the Blackhawks are the best team in the league. Already a silver medalist at the 2010 Vancouver Games and a winner of the 2010 Stanley Cup, Kane looks to acquire more accolades this season, if that is even possible.

Norris Trophy (Best Defenseman): Although only scoring 2 goals in 10 games, Boston’s Zdeno Chara is awarded the Norris Trophy. This award is not for the best scoring defenseman, but rather the best defensive defenseman and Chara has certainly exhibited this. His constant shot blocking and incredible time on ice is the reason for the B’s early success. 

Calder Trophy (Best Rookie): With out a doubt, the rookie of the year has been the St. Louis Blues Vladimir Tarasenko. Although off to a slow start (5th in the Western Conference), it is hard to believe the Blues would be in the top eight teams without the play of Tarasenko. Scoring six goals in fourteen games, look for Tarasenko to continue his success down the stretch. 

Jack Adams Award (Best Coach): The coach of the year has to be Peter DeBoer of the New Jersey Devils. After taking the Devils to the Stanley Cup last year (only to lose to the L.A. Kings), many critics believed the Devils couldn’t recover this year. However, that is not the case as DeBoer has rallied his team to the top of the Eastern standings. 

Vezina Trophy (Best Goalie): Last but certainly not least, the Sentinel awards the Vezina Trophy to Craig Anderson of the Ottawa Senators. Without the play of Anderson, the Senators would be dead last in the NHL. However, Anderson has had two shutouts for the Sens this far and has recorded seven wins. However, you can’t forget about NY Ranger’s goalie Henrik Lundqvist, who proved by winning this award last year that he is one of the best in the game.

So there you have it. With 25% of the season already underway it is imperative that SLS students watch the games as it comes down to the wire. With the shortened season, NHL players will be playing harder than ever to give their team a chance to hold the elusive Lord Stanley Cup.
