2013 NHL Awards - Day One Live Open Thread

Bruce Bennett

Huberdeau could become Panthers' first Calder winner Saturday.

It was a strange season in countless ways, perhaps none more bizarre than shredding the annually unfunny Las Vegas-hosted NHL Awards Show to be replaced with this evening's variant: announcing the awards prior to Game Two of the Stanley Cup Final. From the league:

The winners of the Bill Masterton Memorial, Frank J. Selke, King Clancy and Lady Byng trophies, the Jack Adams Award, the Mark Messier NHL Leadership Award, the NHL Foundation Player Award and the NHL General Manager of the Year Award will be revealed Friday beginning at 5 p.m. ET on NHL Network in the United States and Canada. The program will be streamed live online at NHL.com.

So the actual "reveals" will begin at 5 on NHL.com, with a recap show of sorts on Saturday night:

Beginning at 7 p.m. ET Saturday, NBC Sports Network and CBC will join forces to co-host a live pregame television special in which the winners of the Hart Memorial, Calder Memorial, James Norris Memorial and Vezina trophies, along with the Ted Lindsay Award, will be revealed. The show can be seen on NBCSN in the United States and CBC in Canada.

Update: Yes, I was under the impression it all went down on Friday. Yet another black eye.

However that all plays out, Florida faithful have a rooting interest for a second year in a row. The 2012 event featured Panthers nominees Brian Campbell (Lady Byng, won) and Dale Tallon (Executive of the Year, lost), while tonight we gear up to hear the name of rookie forward Jonathan Huberdeau among fellow Calder candidates Brendan Gallagher (Canadiens) and Brandon Saad (Blackhawks). Stats aplenty (and a bit more from the NHL):


GP G A P +/- PIM PPG SHG GWG GTG SOG PCT
2012 - Jonathan Huberdeau 48 14 17 31 -15 18 2 0 1 112


GP G A P +/- PIM PPG SHG GWG GTG SOG PCT
2012 - Brandon Saad 46 10 17 27 17 12 0 1 2 98


GP G A P +/- PIM PPG SHG GWG GTG SOG PCT
2012 - Brendan Gallagher 44 15 13 28 10 33 3 0 3 117


Win or lose, you've made us all extremely proud in a difficult campaign. Best of luck, Jonny!
