Boeser nominated for Calder Trophy

Islanders center Mathew Barzal skates with the puck

Barzal's impressive and historic rookie season yielded him a Calder Trophy nomination along with Clayton Keller and Brock Boeser.

Vancouver Canucks' Brock Boeser skates during the second period of an NHL hockey game against the Chicago Blackhawks on February 1, 2018. Those 65 points are the most ever recorded by a rookie since the Coyotes relocated to Arizona from Winnipeg in 1996.

But the favorite to win the award in the eyes of most is Barzal.

-He is the second rookie ever to collect three five-point games - the other was Montreal's Joe Malone in 1917-18. the inaugural season of the National Hockey League.

He's quickly proven that he is one of the quickest, most agile skaters in the league and is just as capable of finishing at the net as he is setting up his teammates.

Barzal, the 16th overall selection in the 2015 NHL Draft, led all rookies with 22 goals and 63 assists in 82 games, 20 points more than the next-closest rookie. His assist total was good enough for third all-time as a rookie and tied with the likes of Sidney Crosby and Bryan Trottier.

Hall of Famer Pavel Bure is the only Canuck player to have won the Calder Trophy, and that was way back in the 1991-91 season.

He became the first Islanders rookie since legendary defenseman Denis Potvin in 1974-75 to lead his team in points and assists.

The victor will be announced at the 2018 NHL Awards show in Las Vegas on June 20.
