Hart Trophy: Connor McDavid (-300)
The unrivalled best player in the world, Connor McDavid looks to continue building on his Hall of Fame resume this season as he leads the pack as the favourite to claim what would be his third Hart Trophy win.
In the Edmonton Oilers season opener, McDavid demonstrated why he’s the best bet to claim the Hart trophy, registering a hat trick in a comeback victory over the Vancouver Canucks. With this impressive season debut, there are sure to be more sensational performances from the 25-year-old forward.
Since 2014 Connor McDavid has led the NHL in points scored, an impressive feat especially considering McDavid didn’t make his NHL debut until 2015. Able to use his elite-level skill and unparalleled speed to burn through opposing teams with ease and use his silky mitts to finish up close and personal against even the best netminders in the league.
With McDavid and his Edmonton Oilers looking to make another run at the Stanley Cup, look for McDavid to continue his top-level play as he continues to rack up points and all of the awards and fanfare that come along with it. A bet on the best is always safe money, at (-260) McDavid to win the Hart Trophy is a fantastic NHL Futures wager.
Vezina Trophy: Linus Ullmark (+150)
Coming into this season the number-one goaltender spot was up for grabs on the Boston Bruins but Linus Ullmark now has firm control over the top spot in his team’s depth chart.
As solid a netminder as they come, Ullmark is cool, calm, and collected regardless of the pressure put on him by opposing teams. Ullmark never waivers through adversity, keeping his team alive in any matchup thanks to his brilliant lateral movements and quick glove hand.
After spending six seasons in Buffalo with the Sabres, Ullmark has found a home with the Bruins and is a huge reason for their recent surge in success. Look for Ullmark to leave his mark on the Bruins season as they chase the franchise’s seventh Stanley Cup victory.
While he may be the Vezina favourite, Ullmark still has a spectacular value at (+225). Place a bet on Ullmark to take home the top goalie honour in the NHL and win big on the goaltender’s continued success.
Norris Trophy: Cale Makar (+220)
In just his third NHL season Cale Makar established himself as not just the top defenceman in the NHL, but one of the best players in the world. With elite puck handling and playmaking ability as well as some of the best hockey IQ we’ve ever seen, Makar is poised to grow into a generational talent.
Often compared to NHL great, Bobby Orr, Makar skates like the wind and can control the pace of the game on both sides of the puck. Not a one-trick pony, Makar easily takes over when needed and can single handily win games for his team. In the past two seasons, Makar is tied for the lead in most points scored by a defenceman with Tampa Bay’s Victor Hedman.
As the reigning Norris Trophy and Conn Smythe winner, Makar is posed for another history-making season as he sets out to win his second Norris trophy. If Makar can secure the top defenceman honours again in 2023, he will be the first player to go back-to-back since Niklas Lidstrom capped off a threepeat of the Norris from 2006-2008.
With the defending Stanley Cup Champion Colorado Avalanche setting themselves back up for another run at the Cup, look for Makar to continue to elevate his game as he and his team look to chase history both team performance-wise and personally as well.
Maurice Richard Trophy: Connor McDavid (+180)
Not just the favourite to collect the Hart Trophy this season but also tied as the current favourite to lead the NHL in goals scored, Connor McDavid continues to build upon his Hall of Fame resume as he looks poised to add the Maurice Richard Trophy to his collection.
One of the only achievements that has avoided his grasp may finally be within reach as McDavid currently leads all players in the NHL in goals scored and may never look back from his current lead. Playing at a goal-per-game pace, McDavid is on pace for another historic season, continuing to find ways to one-up himself from the year prior.
Playing at an otherworldly level, McDavid continues to demonstrate why he is the unquestioned best player on the planet as he beats goaltenders routinely while still providing assists to his linemates. McDavid currently sits with solid odds to win this year’s Maurice Richard Trophy.
Calder Trophy: Matty Beniers (+170)
The second-overall pick in the 2021 NHL Entry Draft, Matty Beniers has made an immediate impact on the Seattle Kraken. With four points in three games played, Beniers is off to a hot start and has vaulted his way up the odds table for this year’s Calder Trophy race.
A dynamic offensive player, Beniers has used his elite skating ability and terrific hockey IQ to set the table for his linemates and put points up on the board for his team. The Michigan product has looked more than comfortable playing at the highest level and at his current pace could be on track for a terrific 2022-23 campaign.
At (+250) Beniers still possesses great value early on in the NHL season and is a great look for any bettors interested in getting in on the juicy odds of the Calder Trophy.
