NHL Award Show: Breaking Down The Calder Odds

The Calder Memorial Trophy is handed out to the NHL's Rookie of the year.

Players are only eligible to receive this award in the first year of the career and can only win it once, making it one of the hardest trophies in hockey to get your name on.

It takes quite a season for a player's name to be placed on this piece of hardware.

Teemu's 76 goals or Ovechkin's 106 point rookie campaign, are just a few examples of what it can take to earn this honor.

This year, it could be a 6'8" Defenceman, who to date has tallied 46 points (11G, 35A) and has had a very solid season.

Or a speedy center, who currently has 54 points (23G, 31A) and is slowly but surely becoming the face of his franchise.

Here are some pros and cons for the players mentioned above.
