Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Gabriel Landeskog And Adam Henrique Named Calder Trophy Finalists
Nugent-Hopkins, a center with the Edmonton Oilers, missed a chunk of time earlier this year with two separate shoulder injuries, but still finished with 52 points (18 goals, 34 assists) in 62 games. Nugent-Hopkins was the No. 1 pick in the 2011 draft.
Henrique, a center with the New Jersey Devils, had 51 points (16 goals, 35 assists) and a plus-8 in 74 games.
Landeskog, a left wing with the Colorado Avalanche, also had 52 points (22 goals, 30 assists) and played every game this season, finishing with a plus-20.
“He’s a rookie, but he plays like a veteran out there,” defenseman Shane O’Brien told NHL.com. “He acts like a veteran.”
The winner will be announced during the NHL awards show June 20 in Las Vegas.
