Washington Capitals head coach Barry Trotz has captured the Jack Adams Award as “the NHL coach adjudged to have contributed the most to his team’s success,” as selected by the NHL Broadcasters’ Association.
Trotz was a top-three selection on 80 of the 89 ballots cast, including 58 first-place votes, for 344 voting points. Trotz, whose 658 career victories over 17 NHL seasons rank ninth on the all-time wins list, is a Jack Adams Award winner for the first time. He is the third Capitals head coach to earn Adams honors, joining Bryan Murray (1984) and Bruce Boudreau (2008).
Trotz guided the Capitals (56-18-8, 120 points) to the Presidents’ Trophy as the NHL’s top regular-season club, setting franchise records for total wins and road wins (27). Their 120 points and 29 home wins were just one shy of club records. The Capitals were dominant at both ends of the ice, placing second in team offense (3.02 G/G) and team defense (2.33 GA/G). They also ranked among the League leaders in special teams (5th on the power play, 21.9%, and 2nd in penalty killing, 85.2%).
