The 2012 NHL Awards show is set to take place on Wednesday night from the Encore Theater in the Wynn Las Vegas.

Among the awards that will be handed out is the Jack Adams Trophy, which is, according to the NHL, “presented by the National Hockey League Broadcasters' Association to the NHL coach adjudged to have contributed the most to his team's success.” The broadcasters make their selection at the end of the regular season, meaning that playoff accomplishments are not considered when selecting the best coach in the NHL.

The award was first presented in 1974, when Philadelphia Flyers coach Fred Shero took home the honors.

Up for consideration this year are three deserving candidates, John Tortorella of the NY Rangers, Ken Hitchcock of the St. Louis Blues and Paul MacLean of the Ottawa Senators.

Let’s take a look at what these coaches accomplished and who’s the favorite to take home the award on Wednesday night.
