Frozen Fantasy: Push For a Title

Frozen Fantasy: Push For a Title

This article is part of our Frozen Fantasy series.

It's that time – the final push for a title. What a season it's been.

Great and weird, all in one.

I like this year's divisional format – seeing so many North games spoils me. But I feel like I've missed a lot, too. Like games in every other division.

That's why this year's award season is so hard to predict. How do you pick players that haven't played head-to-head?

How good is good? And how East-coast biased will this year's awards be?

These are my award picks (for now). And yes, there's an East-coast vision. Better to admit it right up front.

Hart – Connor McDavid. Enjoy every game this guy plays. Even Wayne Gretzky is impressed.

Rocket Richard – Auston Matthews. Easy, but his sniping is special. Like Alex Ovechkin special. Enjoy every game he plays, too.

Vezina – Andrei Vasilevskiy. Head, shoulders and torso above. Just look at that division and who he faces every night.

Norris – Victor Hedman. Sure, he's come back to the pack, but he's still the best on both sides of the puck.

Jack Adams – Rod Brind'Amour. It's a toss up between him and Joel Quenneville. Gut call. Then watch him walk to the Kraken next season.

Calder – Kirill Kaprizov. Forget the Jason Robertson fans - Kaprizov is an exciting player and future stud.

Selke – Aleksander Barkov. I wish Jordan Staal would get this – he's had a Patrice Bergeron-like year.
