Connor McDavid Wins The Ted Lindsay Award

LAS VEGAS/ TORONTO (June 20, 2018) – The National Hockey League Players’ Association (NHLPA) announced today at the 2018 NHL Awards™ presented by Hulu that Connor McDavid of the Edmonton Oilers is the recipient of the 2017-18 Ted Lindsay Award (TLA) after garnering the most votes from the players for his exceptional season. The TLA is presented annually “to the most outstanding player in the NHL,” as voted by fellow members of the NHLPA.

Taylor Hall of the New Jersey Devils and Nathan MacKinnon of the Colorado Avalanche both finished as first-time finalists for the TLA. Hall placed sixth in the league in points (93), which were 41 more than his next-closest teammate. MacKinnon co-led the league in game-winning goals (12) and placed second in points per game (1.31).

McDavid is the first player in the history of the TLA to receive the players’ award twice before the age of 22. This is only the 16th time that the players’ choice for most outstanding player differed from the Hart Trophy winner.
