McDavid wins Ted Lindsay Award to open show

McDavid is just 20 years old, a year older than Crosby was when he won his first MVP, but, like Crosby, in just his second year in the league.

Edmonton Oilers captain Connor McDavid will appear on the cover of the EA Sports NHL 18 video game.

McDavid scored 30 goals and tallied 100 total points for the Edmonton Oilers in the 2016-2017 season, leading the team in an impressive postseason run that ended in a second-round loss to the Anaheim Ducks.

The Hart Trophy, then, is just the latest in what's sure to be a long line of career-long accolades for McDavid if the young Oilers standout's 2016-17 campaign was any indication of what's to come. Bobrovsky, the first Russian to win the award twice, and Tortorella played major roles in the Blue Jackets revival for the best season in franchise history. And still, through all that we-can-only-say-this-about-an-all-time-great-player "mediocrity" this season, Crosby was one of the best players in the league.

Among the other award winners were John Tortorella of the Blue Jackets for Coach of the Year, while Toronto Maple Leafs star Auston Matthews was crowned Top Rookie.

Lady Byng Trophy: 'Johnny Hockey" can now adopt the nickname "Johnny Gentleman, ' should he so choose. Emelin has been with Montreal for the past five seasons, while Methot has spent the last five years with the Senators as the longtime defensive partner of Norris Trophy finalist Erik Karlsson. In his first full, 82-game season (after losing 37 games to that broken collarbone in his rookie season), McDavid had precisely 30 goals and 70 assists - nice round numbers for those inclined to memorize hockey stats. The Bruins' shutdown center tied Canadiens legend Bob Gainey's record by winning the award for the fourth time.

Matthews was the no-brainer choice for the Calder after his 69-point rookie season for the Leafs, who hadnt had a Calder victor since Brit Selby in 1966.

Ottawa goalie Craig Anderson won the Bill Masterton Trophy for perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey.

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.
