The Rangers netminder was a near-unanimous choice, receiving the first-place vote on 29 of the 32 ballots and the second-place selection on the three other ballots for 154 voting points. Jacob Markstrom of the Calgary Flames. who was named on 25 ballots in accumulating 53 points, finished second in the voting, followed by Juuse Saros of the Nashville Predators (32 points).

 

Shesterkin posted a League-leading 2.07 goals-against average and .935 save percentage, helping the Rangers (52-24-6) reach 110 points, the third-highest total in franchise history. He recorded the seventh-best save percentage among all NHL goaltenders since the statistic was first officially recorded in 1955-56 (min. 25 GP) and became the second Rangers netminder to top the save percentage chart, following Gump Worsley in 1957-58. He went 36-13-4 with six shutouts in 52 appearances, recording his 30th win of the season in his 41st game – the fewest games required in franchise history.

TAMPA, Fla. (June 21, 2022) – Defenseman Moritz Seider of the Detroit Red Wings is the 2021-22 recipient of the Calder Memorial Trophy, presented “to the player selected as the most proficient in his first year of competition,” as selected by the Professional Hockey Writers Association.

 

Detroit’s first Calder Trophy finalist since 2009-10 (Jimmy Howard), Seider is the sixth player in franchise history to win the award and first since Roger Crozier in 1964-65.

 

Seider was a resounding winner, collecting 170 first-place votes among the 195 ballots cast for 1,853 voting points. Second-place Trevor Zegras of the Anaheim Ducks received 15 first-place votes and was the second choice on 100 others for 1,191 points, followed by Michael Bunting of the Toronto Maple Leafs, who ranked third in voting with 877 points (seven first-place selections).

 

Seider paced rookie defensemen with 7-43—50, a point total surpassed by only two rookie blueliners over the last 30 years (Quinn Hughes: 8-45—53 in 2019-20 w/ VAN; Vladimir Malakhov: 14-38—52 in 1992-93 w/ NYI) and just two rookie defensemen in Detroit history (Reed Larson: 19-41—60 in 1977-78; Nicklas Lidstrom: 11-49—60 in 1991-92). Seider, the sixth overall selection from the 2019 NHL Draft, led all 2021-22 rookies (forwards and defensemen) in assists (43), power-play assists (19) and power-play points (21), while ranking among the top five in shots on goal (3rd; 187), points (4th; 50) and game-winning goals (t-5th; 4). He played in each of the Red Wings’ 82 contests to also lead all rookies in total time on ice (1,889:22) and minutes per game (23:02) – franchise rookie records in both categories (which have been tracked since 1997-98).

TORONTO (June 21, 2022) – The National Hockey League Players’ Association today announced Auston Matthews of the Toronto Maple Leafs has received the players’ vote as the recipient of the 2021-22 Ted Lindsay Award. The TLA is presented “to the most outstanding player in the NHL,” as voted by fellow members of the NHLPA. This season marks the 51st season of the award.

 

The 2021-22 TLA recipient was announced tonight during the 2022 NHL Awards. Defenceman Roman Josi of the Nashville Predators and forward Connor McDavid of the Edmonton Oilers were the finalists for the 2021-22 TLA.

 

As the 2021-22 TLA recipient, after finishing as a TLA finalist last season, Matthews becomes the first Maple Leafs player and second American-born player (Patrick Kane, 2015-16) to receive the award.

 

Matthews played in 73 of Toronto’s 82 regular-season games to help the Maple Leafs place second in the Atlantic Division with a franchise-best 115-point season. He scored 60 goals to win his second consecutive Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy – setting a Maple Leafs’ franchise record (surpassing Rick Vaive’s 54 goals in 1981-82) as well as a single-season record for the most goals scored by an American-born player (besting Jimmy Carson’s 55 goals in 1987-88). From Nov. 24 to April 9, Matthews scored 51 goals in 50 games. The 24-year-old native of Scottsdale, Arizona, led the league in even-strength goals (44), goals per game (0.82) and shots (348), while he tied for sixth in league scoring (106 points). Matthews tied for third in even-strength points (77), and he finished fifth in game-winning goals (10). He also recorded career-best marks in power-play goals (16) and face-off win percentage (56.22).

 

 

The Ted Lindsay Award is unique as the only award voted on by the players themselves, carrying on the tradition established with the Lester B. Pearson Award in 1970-71. NHLPA members annually vote on the player they deem to be the most outstanding in the NHL regular season. Reintroduced in 2009-10 as the namesake of the late Ted Lindsay – the Ted Lindsay Award honours his legacy as a Hall of Fame forward known for skill, tenacity, leadership and his role in establishing the original Players’ Association.

TAMPA, Fla. (June 21, 2022) – Cale Makar of the Colorado Avalanche is the 2021-22 recipient of the James Norris Memorial Trophy, awarded “to the defense player who demonstrates throughout the season the greatest all-round ability in the position,” as selected by the Professional Hockey Writers Association.

 

Makar is the first Norris Trophy winner in franchise history, following top-three finishes by Rob Blake (3rd in 2001-02), Ray Bourque (2nd in 2000-01) and Sandis Ozolinsh (3rd in 1996-97). He previously captured won Calder Trophy in his rookie campaign of 2019-20 and finished second in Norris voting last season.

 

Makar edged Nashville Predators defenseman Roman Josi by a razor-thin margin in voting points, 1,631-1,606, in the closest Norris Trophy vote since Ottawa’s Erik Karlsson shaded Nashville’s Shea Weber 1,069-1,057 in 2012Victor Hedman of the Tampa Bay Lightning, the 2017-18 Norris winner, ranked third in balloting for the fourth consecutive year with 940 points.

 

Makar helped the Avalanche post a franchise-record 119 points by leading NHL defensemen with 28 goals, becoming just the fifth defenseman in the past 30 years to reach that total (Brent Burns, 29 in 2016-17; Mike Green, 31 in 2008-09; Al MacInnis, 28 in 1993-94; and Kevin Hatcher, 34 in 1992-93). He ranked second among blueliners in points (28-58--86) – the goal and point totals setting franchise marks for defensemen – and ranked fifth among all NHLers in plus-minus (+48).

TAMPA, Fla. (June 21, 2022) – Center Auston Matthews of the Toronto Maple Leafs is the 2021-22 recipient of the Hart Memorial Trophy, presented “to the player adjudged to be the most valuable to his team,” as selected by the Professional Hockey Writers Association.

 

Matthews, a Hart Trophy finalist for the second straight year after finishing second in voting in 2020-21, is the third Toronto player to win the award and first since Ted Kennedy in 1954-55.

 

The Maple Leafs star scored a decisive win by attracting 119 first-place votes and 49 second-place tallies among the 195 ballots cast en route to collecting 1,630 voting points. Connor McDavid of the Edmonton Oilers, the two-time and defending Hart Trophy winner, received 29 first-place votes and 1,111 points in finishing second in the voting. Igor Shesterkin of the New York Rangers, the 2021-22 Vezina Trophy recipient, placed third with 738 points (24 first-place selections).

 

Matthews, who captured the 2021-22 Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy as the NHL’s leading goal-scorer and earlier this evening was honored with the Ted Lindsay Award as the most outstanding player in a vote by the NHLPA, posted career highs in goals (60), assists (46) and points (106) in 73 games to power the Maple Leafs to a fourth-place finish in the League standings as well as franchise records for wins (54) and points (115) in a campaign. Matthews became the 21st different player in NHL history – and first in a decade – to register 60 goals in a season, breaking Rick Vaive’s Toronto record (54 in 1981-82) and Jimmy Carson’s League benchmark for U.S.-born players (55 in 1987-88). He did so by averaging 0.82 goals per game – the highest rate by any player in a single campaign (minimum: 50 GP) since Mario Lemieux in 1995-96 (0.99) – and scoring 19.23 percent of the Maple Leafs’ total goals (60 of 312) – the fourth-highest such mark in 2021-22 behind only Chris Kreider (20.8% w/ NYR), Leon Draisaitl (19.3% w/ EDM) and Alex DeBrincat (19.25% w/ CHI).

Im 4 /4 on predictions so far, but Hart is the hard one.

Of course, my “should win” is only 3/4 because no way Makar SHOULD get the Norris.

@ilovehomers did you watch Makar much this year? I watched most of his games and many of Josi’s. While Josi is a great defender and had an offensive season for the books, Makar is the best defenseman in the league. He’s in a league of his own really when you watch him. He’s already an all-timer in my opinion and certainly on his way regardless of if he’s there yet or not.

Didn’t watch a lot of him, I’m just not a fan of the PK numbers and I dont think he blocks shots. some outdated thinking probably smile

Josi almost pulled it off though.

I had McDavid for the Hart, figured voters would split the Lindsay and Hart so McDavid could maintain “best player” status but alas, I failed on the last leg if the parlay.

All the winners were pretty easily decided with the exception of the Norris. Feels like that’s a competitive one each year.
