The Calder Memorial Trophy is a prestigious award that a player can only win once in their lifetime.

To be eligible for the award a player must have met the following criteria:

  • Player must be 26 years or younger
  • The eligible recipient must have not participated in more than 25 games in a single season in the NHL
  • The eligible recipient must have not participated in over 5 games over two separate seasons in any professional major league.

Since the lockout, the Calder has been awarded to a forward five times; Alex Ovechkin, Evgeni Malkin, Patrick Kane, Jeff Skinner, and last year's reigning winner, Gabriel Landeskog.

The award has been given to a defenseman and goalie just once in that time, Buffalo's Tyler Myers and Columbus' Steve Mason.

The following slide show is a look ahead at next year's most likely winners.
