Every year, the NHL's best get together to celebrate their greatness. They recap the season and decide which players deserve which awards, and add in some pretty awkward music and comedy performances too. Here are the recipients of each award in case you missed it.
HART TROPHY - Most Valuable Player
Patrick Kane, Chicago Blackhawks
It seems Kaner is always a finalist for this awards, and rightfully so. With this win, Patrick Kane has become the first American born player to win the award. He is one of the more brilliant players in the league and has the hardware to show for it. Kane finished last season with 106 points: 46 goals and 60 assists.
VEZINA TROPHY - Best Goalie
Braden Holtby, Washington Capitals
Braden Holtby was absolutely the favorite for this award heading into Las Vegas. Holtby racked up 48 wins, which tied Martin Brodeur's single season record. Holtby took 26 out of the 30 votes, which came as a surprise to no one.
NORRIS TROPHY - Best Defenseman
Drew Doughty, LA Kings
There was a lot of controversy surrounding this particular award. Many around the hockey community were calling for Erik Karlsson of Ottawa to win the award, or at least be considered. However Doughty is one of the best defenders in the league, and now has the trophy to show for it.
SELKE TROPHY - Best Defensive Forward
Anze Kopitar, LA Kings
The Selke Trophy always seems to come down to Bergeron or Toews. This year it came down to Bergeron and Kopitar, and Kopitar ended up edging out Bergy. Of course, Boston fans are upset and LA fans are ecstatic. Overall, I think the end of the Bruins season was big factor in why Bergeron didn't win. Kopitar was a finalist this year and last year, and finally pulled it off in 2016.
CALDER TROPHY - Rookie of the Year
Artemi Panarin, Chicago Blackhawks
Although there were plenty of good rookies to decise from, Panarin winning wasn't a huge surprise. He finished top 10 in scoring among all players with 77 points: 30 goals and 44 assists. In case you were in doubt about Chicago's drafting abilities, the last Blackhawk to win the award was Patrick Kane in 2007.
TED LINDSAY AWARD - Most Outstanding voted by players
Patrick Kane, Chicago Blackhawks
If you thought Kane was walking away with just one trophy, you were mistaken. Although the Hart Trophy is a tremendous award, it's a whole different meaning to be selected by your peers. Kane left no doubt that he was the best player in the league this year by winning the Hart and the Ted Lindsay.
JACK ADAMS AWARD - Coach of the Year
Barry Trotz, Washington Capitals
GM OF THE YEAR
Jim Rutherford, Pittsburgh Penguins
BILL MASTERSON TROPHY - Perseverance, Sportsmanship and Dedication
Jaromir Jagr, Florida Panthers
With Jagr still producing at this level, given his age, the perseverance aspect of this award was probably most prevalent. Jagr has also been seen after games in a weight vest doing some workouts. No doubt Jagr is deserving of this award.
LADY BYNG AWARD - Gentlemanly Conduct
Anze Kopitar, Los Angeles Kings
Kopitar brings in his second award of the night after winning the Selke, with the Lady Byng. In an amazing stat, Kopitar played 81 games with an average of over 20 minutes a night. Even with all that playing time, Kopitar only had 8 total penalties adding up to 16 total penalty minutes.
MARK MESSIER LEADERSHIP AWARD
Shea Weber, Nashville Predators
In a very odd move, the NHL still allows Mark Messier to select who he believes is a great leader. This year he picked Shea Weber, who is no doubt the leader on that Nashville team.
