Messier NHL Leadership Award finalists announced

Monday, 05.20.2013 / 10:00 AM / 2013 NHL Awards

Ottawa Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson, Los Angeles Kings captain Dustin Brown and Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews were announced Monday as this year's finalists for the 2012-13 Mark Messier NHL Leadership Award presented by Bridgestone.

First awarded following the 2006-07 season, the honor is given to "the player who exemplifies great leadership qualities to his team, on and off the ice during the regular season." Messier solicits suggestions from club and League personnel as well as NHL fans in compiling a list of potential candidates before personally selecting the three finalists and ultimately the winner.

Adams finalists: Boudreau, MacLean, Quenneville

John Kreiser - Columnist

Bruce Boudreau of the Anaheim Ducks, Paul MacLean of the Ottawa Senators and Joel Quenneville of the Chicago Blackhawks were named Friday as the finalists for the Jack Adams Award, presented "to the NHL coach adjudged to have contributed the most to his team's success."

Boudreau and Quenneville have won the award, but with a different team. Quenneville was recognized for leading the St. Louis Blues to the Presidents' Trophy in 1999-2000, and Boudreau received the award in 2007-08 for coaching the Washington Capitals. If either wins, he would become the fifth coach to capture the award with two teams. Pat Burns is the only coach to win the Adams three times; he did it once each with the Montreal Canadiens, Toronto Maple Leafs and Boston Bruins.

Kane, Moulson, St. Louis up for Lady Byng

Patrick Kane of the Chicago Blackhawks, Matt Moulson of the New York Islanders and Martin St. Louis of the Tampa Bay Lightning have been named the finalists for the 2013 Lady Byng Memorial Trophy, awarded "to the player adjudged to have exhibited the best type of sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with a high standard of playing ability."

Kane, 24, had just eight penalty minutes this season despite averaging 20:03 of ice time per game. By spending so much more time on the ice this season, it allowed him to score 23 goals in 47 games, the same number he scored in 82 games last season. Kane was whistled for a hooking penalty Jan. 26 against the Columbus Blue Jackets, and then didn't take another for 25 games -- a boarding penalty against the Los Angeles Kings on March 25.

Bergeron, Datsyuk, Toews finalists for Selke Trophy

Wednesday, 05.15.2013 / 10:00 AM / 2013 NHL Awards

Adam Kimelman - Deputy Managing Editor

Patrice Bergeron of the Boston Bruins, Pavel Datsyuk of the Detroit Red Wings and Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Blackhawks have been named the finalists for the 2013 Frank J. Selke Trophy.

The award is given annually "to the forward who best excels in the defensive aspects of the game."

Crosby, Harding, McQuaid finalists for Masterton

Tuesday, 05.14.2013 / 10:00 AM / 2013 NHL Awards

Adam Kimelman - Deputy Managing Editor

Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby, Minnesota Wild goaltender Josh Harding and Boston Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid have been named finalists for the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy, awarded to "the National Hockey League player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey."

The winner is selected in a poll of the 30 chapters of the Professional Hockey Writers Association, with a $2,500 grant awarded annually to the Bill Masterton Scholarship Fund in the name of that year's winner.

Crosby, 25, missed most of the previous two seasons dealing with concussion issues, and then the first half of the 2012-13 season -- along with the rest of the League -- during the lockout. Questions were asked if Crosby ever could be the same player he was prior to his injuries. Instead, he returned better than ever this season.

Bergevin, Murray, Shero finalists for GM of the Year

Monday, 05.13.2013 / 10:00 AM / 2013 NHL Awards

Adam Kimelman - Deputy Managing Editor

Marc Bergevin of the Montreal Canadiens, Bob Murray of the Anaheim Ducks and the Pittsburgh Penguins' Ray Shero on Monday were named the finalists for the 2013 NHL General Manager of the Year Award.

The award is voted on by the 30 NHL GMs and a panel of NHL executives and members of the print and broadcast media.

Bergevin, in his first season with the Canadiens, arrived in May 2012 and revamped the front office, topped by the surprising hiring of Michel Therrien as coach. He made the team tougher by signing free agents Brandon Prust and Colby Armstrong, and added center Alex Galchenyuk with the third pick of the 2012 NHL Draft, despite him playing just eight games the previous season because of a major knee injury. He then watched as his team went from a 15th-place finish in the Eastern Conference the previous season to Northeast Division champions for the first time since 2008.

Tavares joins Crosby, Ovechkin as Hart finalist

Friday, 05.10.2013 / 5:15 PM / 2013 NHL Awards

Adam Kimelman - Deputy Managing Editor

Now in his fourth NHL season, New York Islanders center John Tavares has entered the ranks of the elite players in the League.

Tavares on Friday joined Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby and Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin as finalists for the Hart Trophy, awarded annually to the "player adjudged to be the most valuable to his team."

"It's a tremendous honor for me," Tavares told ESPN on Friday. "Growing up, I always wanted to play in the NHL. A lot of people I looked up to and idolized were Hart Trophy nominees and some of the best players to ever play the game.

"It's special and there's a lot of people that helped me on my path to get here today. It truly is special, and a great honor, and very humbling to be recognized with those two great players."

Crosby, Ovechkin, St. Louis named Lindsay finalists

Adam Kimelman - Deputy Managing Editor

Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Washington Capitals' Alex Ovechkin and Martin St. Louis of the Tampa Bay Lightning were announced Thursday as the finalists for the 2013 Ted Lindsay Award.

The award is presented annually to the most outstanding player in the NHL, as voted by fellow members of the National Hockey League Players' Association.

Crosby, who previously won the award in 2007, finished tied for third in the League in scoring with 56 points, but led the League with a 1.56 points-per-game average. He was limited to 36 games due to a broken jaw, and despite not playing a regular-season game after March 30, wasn't overtaken for the League scoring lead until the final week of the season. He also had 15 goals and a career-best plus-26 rating.

Bobrovsky, Lundqvist, Niemi named Vezina finalists

Adam Kimelman - Deputy Managing Editor

There's a decidedly European feel to this year's Vezina Trophy candidates.

Sergei Bobrovsky of the Columbus Blue Jackets, Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers and Antti Niemi of the San Jose Sharks have been named finalists for the 2013 Vezina Trophy, awarded annually "to the goalkeeper adjudged to be the best at his position," as voted by the general managers of the 30 NHL clubs.

This is the first time all three Vezina finalists were born and trained in Europe. It's also the ninth-straight year at least one Vezina finalist is European.
