Wayne Gretzky to present Hart Trophy at NHL Awards

Frederick Owens | 27 June, 2017, 05:55

Never before has such a historic hockey moment been nearly lost in the transactional shuffle.

NHL 18 will also feature the arcade-style 3v3 "NHL Threes" mode, and a completely new Expansion Draft in which you can build your own custom 32nd NHL team, choosing a jersey, mascot and arena.

Jun 21, 2017; Las Vegas, NV, USA; Wayne Gretzky presents Edmonton Oilers player Connor McDavid with the Hart Trophy as the league MVP during the 2017 NHL Awards and Expansion Draft at T-Mobile Arena.

In voting conducted by members of the Professional Hockey Writers' Association, McDavid received 147 of a possible 167 first place votes.

Crosby was beaten out by McDavid, as was Blue Jackets goalie Sergei Bobrovsky, for the Hart this year.

"I think I actually played him when I was younger, but you're not really knowing who anybody is when you're 10, 11-years-old", Matthews said.

Bergeron joined Bob Gainey as the only players to win the Selke four times.

LAS VEGAS Connor McDavid won his first Hart Trophy.

Nashville general manager David Poile has been named the NHL's top executive, and Columbus coach John Tortorella has won the Jack Adams Award as the top coach. The previous two were Wayne Gretzky and Sidney Crosby.

Rocket Richard Trophy (most goals): Sidney Crosby, Pittsburgh Penguins. Much of the Oilers' success falls on McDavid's shoulders, as his 70 assists led the league by a mile and his 1.22 points per game pace also was tops in the NHL this season.

Evacuations ordered for fire on California coast
The Brian Head wildfire in Utah that has prompted the evacuation of 1,500 people from hundreds of homes and cabins. Officials have said the blaze near the ski town of Brian Head was sparked June 17 by a weed-burning torch.


The great players all remained great however, despite the changing hockey environment.

Both editions will have a McDavid Hockey Ultimate Team item, a McDavid celebration, and an Adidas Ultimate Team custom uniform.

Karlsson may have had eight more minor penalties than Tarasenko, but he also played nearly 600 more minutes.

While it's not time to put a close on Crosby's career as the game's best, it could be seen as a bit of a changing of the guard in the National Hockey League.

The first symbolic team of the NHL: Sergei Bobrovsky ("Columbus"), Brent burns ("San Jose"), Erik Karlsson ("Ottawa"), Connor McDavid (Edmonton), Patrick Kane (Chicago) and brad Marchand ("Boston").

That's elite company, indeed, but McDavid took a big step this season toward fulfilling the lofty expectations many had for him even before Edmonton made him the No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 draft.

But with recognition comes expectation, and the game will now look to its swiftest player to help turn up the offensive profile during his career. Toronto started the season with the second-youngest roster in the league.

Hedman finished with 72 points and led all defensemen in assists with 56.

Bobrovsky, who previously won the Vezina in 2013, is the first multiple-time victor since Tim Thomas of the Boston Bruins.

Matthews was the first Maple Leafs player to win the Calder since 1966 when it was awarded to Brit Selby. Laine (64 points in 73 games) would have had a strong case if he played the full season. They likely will be for a long time to come.
