2013 NHL Award Winner Predictions

The NHL is back!

Vezina Trophy Winner (Best Goaltender)


The Favorite: Henrik Lundqvist 4/1


The Field: 12/1


Notables: Pekka Rinne 15/2, Jimmy Howard 11/1, Cam Ward 18/1, Tuukka Rask 12/1, Devan Dubnyk 50/1


The Pick: Jonathan Quick 5/1


The Reason: Quick is coming off of a fantastic playoffs and, other than Martin Brodeur, is the goalie with the most recent win in the NHL. The key to this pick is a winning team, and the Kings have the most talent on paper. A good long shot is Ward at 18/1.


Art Ross Trophy Winner (Most Points)


The Favorite: Sidney Crosby 11/4


The Field: 15/1


Notables: Evgeni Malkin 5/1, Stephen Stamkos 13/2, Henrik Sedin 10/1, Joe Thornton 45/1, Pavel Datsyuk 45/1


The Pick: Alex Ovechkin 13/2


The Reason: Ovechkin is looking to rebound from one of the worst seasons in his career. New Head Coach Adam Oates is a former forward and had a knack for putting points up. Ovechkin tore it up during the lockout and is poised for a big year. Datsyuk at 45/1 is a good long shot bet.


"Rocket" Richard Trophy Winner (Most Goals)


The Favorite: Steven Stamkos 11/4


The Field: 18/1


Notables: Alex Ovechkin 4/1, Evgeni Malkin 5/1, Phil Kessel 18/1, Jerome Iginla 30/1, Taylor Hall 30/1


The Pick: Malkin


The Reason: Simple; Sidney Crosby is back to distribute. Kessel and Hall are good long shot bets.


Hart Memorial Trophy (MVP)

The Favorite: Sidney Crosby 4/1

Any Defenseman: 30/1

Any Goaltender: 5/1


Field: 11/5


Notables: Stephen Stamkos 6/1, Alex Ovechkin 13/2


The Pick: Any Goalie. This seems logical right? 48 games in 99 days, goaltending is what will determine the success and failure of a team more so than ever this season. Ovechkin is a solid play at 13/2.
