Calder Trophy Watch: Early Rankings of Top Candidates for 2013-14 Award

Last season, Florida's Jonathan Huberdeau won the NHL's rookie of the year award in a decision that was both close and controversial. It was one that saw five different candidates receive more than 10 first-place votes, as commemorated at HFboards.com, and featured a photo finish between Huberdeau and the Montreal Canadiens' Brendan Gallagher. 

In contrast, 2011-12 was a two-horse race between Avalanche forward Gabriel Landeskog and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins of the Oilers, and one which Landeskog eventually won by a hefty margin.

What kind of race is shaping up this year? Is it a crowded field with many contenders, or a shallow one with a clear front-runner? Read on to see what my hypothetical ballot would look like if the voting were held today.

 

Unless otherwise noted, statistics come from NHL.com or ExtraSkater.com and are current through November 28.
