The Calder Memorial Trophy is an annual award given “to the player selected as the most proficient in his first year of competition in the NHL,” thus serving as the league’s Rookie of the Year award. Panthers center Jonathan Huberdeau took home the honor last year while Avalanche winger Gabriel Landeskog won in 2011-12.

The three finalists for this year’s award were announced on April 23, 2014. Two of the three finalists are from the same team this year, as Tampa Bay Lightning teammates Tyler Johnson and Ondrej Palat are up for the award. The third finalists is Nathan MacKinnon of the Colorado Avalanche, who is currently the clear favorite to win the Calder Memorial Trophy this year.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, MacKinnon is a 1/16 favorite to win the award, while Palat is 11/1 and Johnson is the current long shot in the group at 12/1. This means that for every $16.00 that you wager on MacKinnon winning, you’ll only win $1.00. And for every $1.00 that you wager on Palat, you’ll win $11.00, while every $1.00 that you wager on Johnson you’ll win $12.00.

MacKinnon racked up 24 goals and 39 assists over 82 games this season for the Avalanche, while also finishing with a plus/minus of 20. As for Palat, he scored 23 goals and added 36 assists in 81 games, while Johnson scored 24 goals and finished with 26 assists in 82 games for the Lightning.
