Nominee 1: In his first season as Islanders captain, John Tavares tallied the highest point-per-game ratio of his career with 66 points in 59 games (1.12 ppg). Tavares finished second in team scoring despite missing 23 games due to injury.

Nominee 2: Kyle Okposo was a revelation for the Islanders this season, emerging as the team’s top scorer during a breakout campaign. Okposo led the Islanders with 69 points (27 goals, 42 assists) in 71 games and tied Patrick Kane and Martin St. Louis for 19th in league scoring.

Nominee 3: Frans Nielsen had a career-year in 2013-14, setting new highs in goals (25), assists (33) and points (58). The Danish center added a new offensive dimension to his outstanding defensive game, making him a more dangerous overall player.
