Wayne Gretzky to present Hart Trophy at NHL Awards

The Latest: Foley says Vegas fans will love their new roster The Latest: Bergeron wins Selke, Burns claims Norris

Franchise mode is also seemingly being rebranded into Expansion Mode, in which you'll be able to take a hypothetical 32nd National Hockey League team from the Expansion Draft to a Cup-winning machine.

Sergei Bobrovsky of the Columbus Blue Jackets captured his second career Vezina Trophy, awarded to the league's best goaltender.

Canada has good luck getting on the cover of National Hockey League games; too bad it doesn't have the same luck winning the Stanley Cup.

He wasn't the only goalie in the Vegas spotlight, however.

"Playing hockey is not possible for me during the upcoming 2017-18 season", Hossa said.

Nashville's David Poile was named the NHL's top executive after the Predators' first Western Conference title, and Columbus' John Tortorella won the Jack Adams Award as the league's top coach. Tortorella also won the award in 2004 when he was with the Tampa Bay Lightning. Last season, he was nominated for and won the Calder Trophy for rookie of the year, and he has come a long way since then.

Matthews claimed the honor during the NHL's annual awards show, easily outdistancing Winnipeg's Patrik Laine and Columbus' Zach Werenski.

McDavid, tellingly, hadn't gotten a glimpse of Matthews until he saw him play at the world junior championships in 2016 - months before the Leafs made him their first No. 1 overall pick since 1985.

Jonathan Marchessault, Cody Eakin and Brayden McNabb are among the first players joining the Vegas Golden Knights in the expansion draft. Fleury took the stage in a Golden Knights jersey to wild cheers from his new home fans.

Wayne Gretzky is the youngest player to win the Hart.

Patrice Bergeron was once again recognized for his defensive excellence, winning his fourth Selke Trophy. Burns doesn't think offensive numbers alone determine the Norris victor. The heavily bearded big man with an aggressive offensive game scored 76 points to lead all defensemen.

Blue Jackets captain Nick Foligno was awarded the King Clancy Memorial Trophy and the Mark Messier Leadership Award, making him the first National Hockey League player to win both awards in the same year.

McDavid, Crosby and San Jose's Brent Burns also are up for the Ted Lindsay Award as most outstanding player as voted by peers.

"Representing "NHL 18" as the cover athlete is an incredible honor", McDavid said in a statement.

The results of the expansion draft also will be revealed throughout the two-hour awards show.

"I think I actually played him when I was younger, but you're not really knowing who anybody is when you're 10, 11-years-old", Matthews said. The season may have ended with Sidney Crosby holding up another Cup, but it was McDavid who got the nod in the awards category.
