Edmonton's Connor McDavid wins first Hart Trophy as NHL MVP

Jan Ortega | 27 June, 2017, 03:03

Jun 21, 2017; Las Vegas, NV, USA; Wayne Gretzky presents Edmonton Oilers player Connor McDavid with the Hart Trophy as the league MVP during the 2017 NHL Awards and Expansion Draft at T-Mobile Arena.

But now, a decade after Crosby captured the Hart for the first time, you can add Edmonton Oilers' phenom Connor McDavid to the exclusive list of 20-or-under players with Hart honors.

McDavid is only the 10 National Hockey League player to win the three awards during the same year and he becomes just the third to win the Hart Trophy prior to being 21 years old.

Lastly, thanks to an overwhelming amount of votes from the Professional Hockey Writers Association, McDavid took home the Hart Memorial Trophy, given to the NHL's most valuable player.

Just a few months before the Golden Knights take to the ice for their first season in Las Vegas, the NHL Awards took over Sin City on Wednesday to honor the best players in the hockey league.

In the fight for the top individual award of the season McDavid ahead of the forward "Pittsburgh" Sidney Crosby and the goalkeeper "Columbus" Sergey Bobrovsky.

Bergeron also won the Selke in 2012, 2014 and 2015.

Calder Trophy (best rookie): Auston Matthews. Picking the 20-year old National Hockey League player was likely an easy decision given his recent awards and accomplishments within the league.

Calgary's Johnny Gaudreau took the Lady Byng Trophy, symbolic of gentlemanly conduct and a high standard of play.

McDavid would then officially be awarded the Art Ross Trophy, which he clinched at the end of the 2016-17 regular season.

Vegas Golden Knights owner Bill Foley is eager to reveal the roster that his franchise is building through the expansion draft. Tortorella won the Jack Adams Award for the best coach after turning the Blue Jackets from last in the division to third with over 100 points. The Bruins' shutdown center tied Canadiens legend Bob Gainey's record by winning the award for the fourth time.

And still, through all that we-can-only-say-this-about-an-all-time-great-player "mediocrity" this season, Crosby was one of the best players in the league. Among the Golden Knights' other selections was defenseman Brayden McNabb, from L.A., another ex-Monarch.

Burns' Norris victory may have caught some by surprise, however, and it was a close race between he and Erik Karlsson.

The expansion Vegas Golden Knights will make their regular-season debut on the road in Dallas on October 6 and host the Arizona Coyotes on October 10 in the first home game in franchise history. The 40-year-old is likely weighing whether Cleveland is a good spot for him to begin a new career, given the team's recent upheaval and that superstar LeBron James will be eligible for free agency after next season. As such, the latest entry in the ice hockey series aims to "deliver the speed of today's young NHL stars".
