Matthews, Laine and Werenski are Calder Trophy finalists

22 April 2017, 12:44 | Andy Ferguson

"Winnipeg Jets' Patrik Laine is among three finalists for the NHL's rookie of the year award, The Calder Trophy". Matthews continues to revel in the limelight as the first overall pick in the 2016 draft, producing a team-high 69 points (40 goals, 29 assists) in a full regular season, and keeping the Leafs in tight with the Presidents' Trophy-winning Capitals in the active conference quarterfinals. He was the best rookie on a young Maple Leafs team that also had Calder contenders William Nylander and Mitch Marner. He also paced all rookies with a plus-17 rating, while ranking in the top 10 among first-year players in power-play assists (17), power-play points (21), assists (36), shots on goal (188), points (47) and power-play goals (4).

He led the league with three hattricks and finished seventh in NHL scoring despite missing seven games in January with a concussion.

The 2016-17 victor of the Calder Trophy will be announced on Wednesday, June 21 during the 2017 NHL Awards Show from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
