Four players attending the 2016 NHL Awards in Las Vegas on Wednesday (7 p.m. ET; NBCSN, SN) will be looking extra sharp, thanks to the NHL's continuing partnership with menswear designer John Varvatos.

Tampa Bay Lightning goaltender Ben Bishop, Calgary Flames defenseman Mark Giordano, Washington Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby and New York Islanders forward Matt Martin will all wear Bespoke suits from the latest Varvatos collection. Bishop and Holtby are finalists for the Vezina Trophy for best goaltender, and Martin is a finalist for the NHL Foundation Player Award.

This will be the sixth year of the partnership between Varvatos and the NHL. The designer has dressed 21 players for the annual awards show thus far. It will take 45 feet of material to make the suits for the four players this year.

Varvatos himself is a hockey fan, and a huge supporter of the Detroit Red Wings.

The 2016 NHL Awards will be hosted by Will Arnett and will feature music from X Ambassadors.
