"Hockey is so not about personal stats at all", he said at Adidas' Las Vegas unveiling of new NHL jerseys on the eve of the awards show.
While Crosby didn't claim the Hart, the back-to-back Stanley Cup champion won the Richard Trophy as the NHL's top goal-scorer. Toronto center Auston Matthews easily took the Calder Trophy as the league's top rookie, and Columbus goalie Sergei Bobrovsky won his second Vezina Trophy. The 28-year-old finished 2016-17 with a 2.06 goals-against average and.931 save percentage, both of which were National Hockey League bests.
He wasn't the only goalie in the Vegas spotlight, however. "(The Golden Knights) will definitely grow the game". The release also promises that Hockey Ultimate Team will return along with Solo Challenges and a Hockey Training Camp that appear to be an attempt to make things easier for newer players.
General Manager of the Year: David Poile, Nashville Predators. He became the first Oiler to reach that milestone since Doug Weight eclipsed the century mark in 1995-96, and his 30 multipoint games helped snap Edmonton's decade-long postseason drought. Tortorella also won the award in 2004 when he was with the Tampa Bay Lightning. Matthews set franchise rookie records for goals and points.
Winnipeg right-wing Patrik Laine and Columbus defenceman Zach Werenski were the other finalists for the award.
Vegas Golden Knights hold cards as NHL expansion draft nears
How do we want to do this? How can we protect your roster? "You can negotiate your way out of this if you wish", McPhee said . It's believed that Vegas already has many pre-arranged trades in place, some that will happen and others that might not.
Jonathan Marchessault, Cody Eakin and Brayden McNabb are among the first players joining the Vegas Golden Knights in the expansion draft. The Boston Bruins star has won the Selke three of the last four years and is now tied with Bob Gainey for the most all time.
Patrice Bergeron was once again recognized for his defensive excellence, winning his fourth Selke Trophy.
Burns is a first-time victor of the Norris. The San Jose Sharks star led all defensemen in points with 76 (29 goals, 47 assists).
Burns beat out Ottawa's Erik Karlsson, who scored 71 points.
Connor McDavid won his first Hart Trophy.
"I'm so proud to be in Edmonton", said McDavid. "I can't wait to play 'NHL 18'". The season may have ended with Sidney Crosby holding up another Cup, but it was McDavid who got the nod in the awards category.
Here's why the Xbox One X is so damned expensive
We don't know how many classic Xbox games will be playable from the start, but we already know which games we want the most. And now with the Xbox One S and the incoming Xbox One X , Spencer is happy with the company's hardware front.
Vegas Golden Knights owner Bill Foley is eager to reveal the roster that his franchise is building through the expansion draft.
You can check out the trailer below, which debuted tonight during the 2017 NHL Awards. "Well, so can I".
"What surprised me was the quality of some of our forwards that we were able to get out of this situation", Foley said. "They're going to be pleasantly surprised". McDavid's all-round game isn't as polished as Crosby, but he's arguably the most unsafe offensive player in the league and ranked fourth among forwards in average ice time.
In response to questions about Seattle and Quebec City, Bettman says owners weren't interested in considering another expansion process.
A severe reaction to medication for a skin disorder has put Chicago Blackhawks winger Marian Hossa's career in doubt. Hossa can be placed on long-term injured reserve, giving the Blackhawks much-needed salary relief.
Crosby and nine-time victor Wayne Gretzky were both 19 when they picked up the award for the first time. That award is also known as an MVP trophy, but is voted on by the players rather than writers like the Hart Trophy process.
