NHL Announces Award Winners – Jets, Manitobans Left Off the List

On Tuesday evening, the National Hockey League hosted its annual award show following the conclusion of the 2020-21 regular season. Five awards, including the Norris Trophy, the Hart Trophy, the Ted Lindsay Award, the Vezina Trophy and the Calder Trophy were announced.

Alongside the major year-end awards was the reveal of the 2020-21 First and Second Team All-Stars as well as the All-Rookie Team following this past season of play. As is always the case, the individual awards are in recognition of player accomplishments during the regular season of play, without taking into account any postseason production/lack there of.

The big winner on Tuesday was Edmonton Oilers’ captain Connor McDavid, who not only earned the Ted Lindsay Award, but also became just the second player all-time (Wayne Gretzky) to be the beneficiary of a clean sweep of 100/100 first-place votes in the Hart Trophy running.

Marc-Andre Fleury took home the Vezina Trophy as the league’s best goaltender, narrowly edging out Tampa Bay’s Andrei Vasilevskiy. Rangers’ defenceman Adam Fox was awarded with the Norris Trophy as the most outstanding blueliner, while Minnesota’s Kirill Kaprizov earned the Calder Trophy as the league’s rookie of the year.

No Manitobans earned any year-end awards, nor did any members of the Winnipeg Jets. Connor Hellebuyck, however, did garner one fifth-place vote in he Hart Trophy voting, while also picking up two first-place votes and three third-place votes in the Vezina Trophy running.
