Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Gabriel Landeskog, Adam Henrique up for NHL's Calder Trophy

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Gabriel Landeskog and Adam Henrique are the finalists for the Calder Trophy as the NHL's rookie of the year.

They all finished within a point of one another at the top of the scoring chart among first-year players.

Nugent-Hopkins, last year's No. 1 overall pick, had 52 points (18-34) in 62 games for the Edmonton Oilers, matching Landeskog's output for Colorado. Henrique had 51 points for New Jersey.

The voting was conducted by members of the Professional Hockey Writers' Association.

The winner will be announced during the NHL awards show in Las Vegas on June 20.

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
