  • Vancouver Canucks' Elias Pettersson poses on the red carpet before the NHL Awards Wednesday

Nikita Kucherov dominated the NHL Awards on Wednesday.

Kucherov, who turned 26 on Monday, received 164 of 171 first-place votes in a runaway victory over two-time MVP Sidney Crosby of Pittsburgh and 2017 Hart victor Connor McDavid of Edmonton.

Kucherov is the first Russian-born player to win the Hart since Alex Ovechkin in 2013 and the second Lightning player ever to win it (Martin St. Louis, 2004).

Kucherov, who turned 26 on Monday, also won the Ted Lindsay Award as the league's outstanding player as selected by his fellow players. If you think too much, your game can just go away, and bad things can happen.

Kucherov won the Hart Trophy as the NHL's most valuable player.

"It's obviously a huge honor", O'Reilly said of winning the Selke. Yeah, it's insane. It's great.

The Lindsay is the league's top player as voted on by the NHL Players Association. Vasilevskiy, winning the award for the first time, recorded an NHL-leading 39 victories.

The 20-year-old Pettersson joins Pavel Bure (1992) as the only Calder winners in Canucks history. Giordano beat out two vaunted finalists: San Jose's Brent Burns, who won it in 2017, and Tampa Bay's Victor Hedman, who won it previous year.

Last night, the National Hockey League held its annual awards ceremony to honor the players, coaches, and executives who were the best in their respective categories over the past year. Bergy was looking for his fifth "best defensive forward" award.

Vasilevskiy was a finalist last season when Pekka Rinne of the Nashville Predators took home the honour.

In terms of whom Sweeney was competing against, he battled his championship rival, Doug Armstrong, the general manager of the St. Louis Blues.
