by National Hockey League @NHL / NHL.com

Jared Bednar (Colorado Avalanche), Bruce Cassidy (Boston Bruins) and Gerard Gallant (Vegas Golden Knights) were named finalists for the Jack Adams Award on Wednesday, given annually to the coach voted best in the NHL.

The winner will be announced at the 2018 NHL Awards presented by Hulu at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas on June 20.

Bednar coached the Avalanche to one of the best single-season turnarounds in NHL history. Colorado (43-30-9) earned 95 points, a 47-point increase from when they finished last in the standings in 2016-17, and clinched a Stanley Cup Playoff berth for the first time since 2013-14. The Avalanche won 28 games at home, tying their record set in 2000-01. Bednar is a first-time finalist who could become the third coach in Avalanche/Quebec Nordiques history to win the award (Patrick Roy, 2013-14; Marc Crawford, 1994-95).
