LAS VEGAS — How did I vote in the 2023-24 NHL Awards?

Here’s my official ballot, along with some of my reasoning.

HART TROPHY

Winner: Nathan MacKinnon

My vote:

1. Nathan MacKinnon
2. Nikita Kucherov
3. Connor Hellebuyck
4. Connor McDavid
5. Auston Matthews

In a close vote, I’m almost always going to take a center over a winger, in terms of importance to a team.

NORRIS TROPHY

Winner: Quinn Hughes

My vote:

1. Quinn Hughes
2. Cale Makar
3. Victor Hedman
4. Roman Josi
5. Adam Fox

CALDER TROPHY

Winner: Connor Bedard

My vote:

1. Brock Faber
2. Connor Bedard
3. Luke Hughes
4. Logan Cooley
5. Marco Rossi

It’s tougher to excel as a No. 1 defenseman on an average NHL team than put up points for the second-worst team in the league.

LADY BYNG TROPHY

Winner: Jaccob Slavin

My vote:

1. Esa Lindell
2. Jaccob Slavin
3. Nico Hischier
4. Jesper Bratt
5. Elias Pettersson

1. Aleksander Barkov
