The 2018 NHL Awards show will be held Wednesday night in Las Vegas. The annual ceremony unveils the league’s top award winners for the recently ended season, including the Hart Trophy for most valuable player.
This year’s show starts at 7 p.m. CT at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and will be broadcast live by NBCSN in the United States and Sportsnet in Canada. It’ll also be available online for live streaming on NBC Sports’ website.
Expect it to be a special night in Vegas for several reasons. For one, there will be no celebrity host trying to crack jokes like in past years. Instead, the finalists themselves will be co-hosting the show, which could be interesting.
Additionally, the show will feature commemorations for three tragedies that impacted the hockey community in the last year.
“Survivors and first responders from last October’s Las Vegas shooting, members of the hockey team from Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, and surviving members of the Humboldt Broncos junior team will be recognized and honored at the event,” the league announced recently.
Here are the nominees for the major awards.
Hart Trophy: Taylor Hall, Anze Kopitar, Nathan MacKinnon
Norris Trophy: Drew Doughty, Victor Hedman, P.K. Subban
Selke Trophy: Patrice Bergeron, Sean Couturier, Anze Kopitar
