LAS VEGAS — Connor McDavid has won the Ted Lindsay Award as the NHL’s most outstanding player as voted on by his fellow players.
The Edmonton Oilers captain beat out Colorado Avalanche centre Nathan MacKinnon and New Jersey Devils winger Taylor Hall for the honour to kick off the NHL Awards in Las Vegas.
MacKinnon, Hall and Los Angeles Kings centre Anze Kopitar were in the running later in program for the Hart Trophy — the league MVP award voted on by the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association.
McDavid got the nod for both the Hart and the Ted Lindsay last season.
He had 41 goals and 67 assists with a plus-20 rating in 82 games for Edmonton this season.
