The Latest on NHL awards show at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino (all times local):
New Jersey forward Taylor Hall has won the Hart Trophy as the NHL’s most valuable player.
Hall beat out Los Angeles captain Anze Kopitar and Colorado’s Nathan MacKinnon in a contest between three first-time finalists for the award.
Hall finished sixth in the league with 93 points for the Devils. He is the first New Jersey player to win the Hart.
Hall http://www.redskinsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-derrius-guice-jersey , the No. 1 pick in the 2010 draft, likely got the nod over two worthy contenders because of the way he carried the Devils offensively while they reached the playoffs for the first time in five years. He scored 41 more points than rookie Nico Hischier, the Devils’ second-leading scorer.
George McPhee has been named the NHL’s general manager of the year in the fourth trophy given to the Vegas Golden Knights at the NHL Awards.
Exactly one year after his remarkable performance in the expansion draft, McPhee was a no-brainer choice for the award after his masterful assembly of the most successful debut team in recent sports history.
The Golden Knights went 51-24-7 and won the Pacific Division before reaching the Stanley Cup Final, setting innumerable records along the way for first-year success.
McPhee beat out Winnipeg’s Kevin Cheveldayoff and Tampa Bay’s Steve Yzerman for the award.
McPhee joins coach Gerard Gallant, Lady Byng winner William Karlsson and Mark Messier Leadership Award winner Deryk Engelland with trophies from the annual show in the Golden Knights’ hometown.
Nashville Predators goalie Pekka Rinne has won the Vezina Trophy as the NHL’s top goalie.
The 35-year-old Finn won his position’s top honor for the first time, beating out Winnipeg’s Connor Hellebuyck and Tampa Bay’s Andrei Vasilevskiy.
Rinne was a Vezina finalist for the fourth time. He finally got it after a standout regular season for the Presidents’ Trophy winners in Nashville, where he has been a stalwart in goal since 2008.
Rinne went 42-13-4 with eight shutouts, a 2.31 goals-against average and a .927 save percentage for the Predators. He also earned his 300th career victory on Feb. 22.
Rinne struggled along with his teammates in the postseason, but voters didn’t hold it against him.
Gerard Gallant of the Vegas Golden Knights has won the Jack Adams Trophy as the NHL’s top coach.
Gallant was an obvious choice over Colorado’s Jared Bednar and Boston’s Bruce Cassidy after he masterminded the most spectacular expansion season in recent sports history. The Golden Knights went 51-24-7 and handily won the Pacific Division before winning 13 postseason games and reaching the Stanley Cup Final in their first playoff campaign.
The 54-year-old Gallant was named the Golden Knights’ first coach in April 2017, and the veteran NHL coach provided steady leadership while turning Vegas’ expansion roster into a cohesive Cheap Josh Allen Jersey , motivated team. Gallant’s players praised his steady, intelligent approach to the postseason, which ended in a five-game loss to the Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals.
Gallant previously coached in Columbus and Florida, but his teams had never won a playoff round before Vegas’ remarkable run.
Los Angeles Kings captain Anze Kopitar has won the Selke Trophy as the NHL’s top defensive forward.
Kopitar won the trophy for the second time in three years, beating out perennial candidate and four-time winner Patrice Bergeron of Boston, along with Philadelphia’s Sean Couturier.
Kopitar led all NHL forwards in ice time during another standout season for the Kings, who were the NHL’s top statistical defensive team. The Slovenian star played extensively on the penalty kill and took 1,816 faceoffs.
Kopitar was a finalist for the Selke for the fourth time in five seasons. Bergeron has been a finalist in seven straight seasons, passing Pavel Datsyuk’s NHL record.
Kopitar is also a finalist for the Hart Trophy as the NHL’s MVP.
New Jersey’s Brian Boyle has won the Masterton Trophy for perseverance and dedication to hockey.
The other finalists were Florida’s Roberto Luongo and Carolina’s Jordan Staal.
The 33-year-old Boyle was diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia during training camp, but he made it back into the Devils’ lineup in November and eventually represented New Jersey at the All-Star game after teammate Taylor Hall couldn’t go because of injury.
Boyle put together an outstanding season even while his 2-year-old son, Declan Oren Burks Color Rush Jersey , also had significant health problems.
Vegas Golden Knights forward William Karlsson has won the Lady Byng Trophy as the player best combining sportsmanship and ability.
After Columbus made a deal with Vegas to take Karlsson off its hands in the expansion draft, the talented Swede had a breakthrough season for the expansion Golden Knights, racking up 43 goals and 35 assists with only 12 penalty minutes. Karlsson had never scored more than 25 points in any of his three previous NHL seasons with Anaheim and the Blue Jackets.
”Who would have thought?” Karlsson said with a smile after picking up his award.
Karlsson’s trophy is the first individual player honor earned by the Golden Knights. Coach Gerard Gallant, general manager George McPhee and defenseman Deryk Engelland are also up for awards later in the ceremony in the Knights’ hometown.
LeBron James is already the biggest star of his generation, and he followed a familiar path to Los Angeles‘ bright lights when he decided to sign with the Lakers as a free agent.
It’s no coincidence that this glamorous, 16-time champion franchise has consistently attracted already great players with outsized ambition. The 33-year-old James has taken on the challenge that Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Shaquille O’Neal all accepted near the primes of their careers.
Becoming a basketball superstar is one thing, and nobody is bigger than James after 15 prolific NBA seasons and three championships. Succeeding with the Lakers is something different, according to many of the men who have worn this gold jersey.
Just ask Bryant, who won two Olympic gold medals as James’ teammate while spending his entire 20-year career with the Lakers.
”The NBA does better when the Lakers are at their highest potential Logan Paulsen Color Rush Jersey ,” Bryant, who retired in 2016, told Fox Sports Radio on Monday. ”And for the city of LA, it’s important for us to have that star power. Jerry (West) was here. Elgin Baylor was here. Wilt was here. Magic was here. Cap (Abdul-Jabbar) was here. Shaq, myself, and now let’s carry it forward again. You’ve got LeBron here now. It’s his turn now. Hopefully he can – which he will – take this franchise back to prominence.”
Given the Golden State Warriors‘ addition of DeMarcus Cousins to what was already a ludicrously loaded roster, a championship seems logically out of reach for anybody else in the NBA. James already was aware of the upstate challenge he’ll face after losing three of the last four NBA Finals to the Warriors in Cleveland.
And with innumerable variables still to be settled before the regular season, it’s impossible to predict what James will be able to accomplish with a revamped Lakers roster.
But at least the worst half-decade in franchise history should become a bad memory for Lakers fans, who seethed through five irrelevant seasons highlighted mostly by Bryant’s retirement tour. The Lakers’ 35 victories last year were their best performance during five years without a postseason game for a team that had never missed the playoffs more than two seasons in a row.
After James announced his decision to join the Lakers on a four-year, $153.3 million deal Sunday, the Lakers’ jersey sales skyrocketed and prices spiked on the secondary ticket market. Fans gathered among the statues in Star Plaza outside Staples Center http://www.panthersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-donte-jackson-jersey , tossing chalk into the air in a simulation of James’ famed gesture.
Los Angeles also made a flurry of complementary moves as Johnson attempted to assemble an immediate playoff contender on the wreckage of five playoff-free years.
Rajon Rondo, JaVale McGee and Lance Stephenson are joining along with James. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is staying, along with – for now – the young core of Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma and Josh Hart.
Julius Randle, Isaiah Thomas and several others are out. The Lakers will build around James, and they’ll continue to attempt to land Kawhi Leonard or another superstar to team up with him over the next year.
With Randle’s departure, the Lakers will have no players left on their roster who played with Bryant in his final game in 2016. The Lakers are steaming toward a new future, with little tying them to the lamentable recent past.
But with the signing of a free-agent superstar, the Lakers already have followed through on the most important part of the plan set forth 16 months ago by Magic Johnson when he took over the club’s basketball operations. Although he spent his entire career with LA, Magic knows the magnitude of the Lakers’ lure.
Chamberlain made this move in 1968 Andrei Svechnikov Jersey , with the NBA’s reigning Most Valuable Player requesting a trade from Philadelphia to join Baylor and West.
Abdul-Jabbar did it in 1975 after requesting a trade from Milwaukee to a cosmopolitan city, and he went on to become the NBA’s career scoring leader during 14 seasons with the Lakers.
O’Neal went west as a free agent in 1996, embracing the advantages of living in Hollywood while moonlighting as an actor and rapper.
James is arguably bigger than them all, a multi-media star with a legitimate entertainment production company already churning out content for the likes of NBC, the History Channel and Starz.
When James suits up for the season opener, six of the top eight scorers in NBA history will be Lakers.
”This is a special place,” Johnson said recently. ”We know what’s special about this franchise. The people we choose to come here are going to know that, too.”
