The Professional Hockey Writers Association has released this year’s Conn Smythe Trophy votes in full for the first time.
Alex Ovechkin took home the trophy with 13 of 18 first-place votes and 80 points total. Each first-place vote was worth five points, second-place worth three, and third worth one.
Evgeny Kuznetsov was the only other player to receive a first-place vote, finishing with 64 points. Braden Holtby was third with 16 points.
The voters’ choices were mostly in cohesion, save for a couple of stragglers who gave Vegas Golden Knights goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury some love with two third-place votes.
