Edmonton's Connor McDavid wins first Hart Trophy as NHL MVP

In his second season in the NHL, McDavid was the league's top scorer with 100 points (30 goals and 70 assists) in 82 games as Edmonton returned to the playoffs for the first time in 11 seasons.

Wednesday night, the NHL announced the cover athlete for the later iteration of the EA Sports NHL franchise: NHL 18. Second, NHL 18 adds an authentic 3-on-3 online team play option to the fan-favorite EA Sports Hockey League mode, allowing for more open ice and strategic, risk-vs-reward multiplayer competition.

Wayne Gretzky is the youngest player to win the Hart.

Burns' Norris victory may have caught some by surprise, however, and it was a close race between he and Erik Karlsson.

"So I'm definitely a huge fan of the games and to be on the cover ... it's awesome."

Ottawa's Marc Methot and Calgary's Johnny Gaudreau were among the players to miss time last season with hand injuries from slashes. Bergeron also claimed the trophy in 2012, 2014 and 2015.


Wayne Gretzky, who presented the trophy to McDavid, won the trophy himself eight times while playing for the Oilers. "For myself, when the Coyotes moved (to Phoenix), that's how I got into hockey".

While the yearly titled was officially announced prior to E3, EA Sports was poised to fully unveil the new game at the NHL Awards in Las Vegas.

The Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins will raise another banner and begin their quest for a three-peat October 4 against the St. Louis Blues. Nashville celebrates the longest playoff run in franchise history at home October 10 against the Philadelphia Flyers.

NHL THREES: This game mode is similar to the new EASHL mode listed above but will have a more arcade style of play. "I can't wait to play National Hockey League 18." . "While I am disappointed that I will not be able to play, I have to consider the severity of my condition and how the treatments have impacted my life both on and off the ice". The 19-year veteran has only missed 46 games over the past six seasons and scored 45 points last season. Hossa can be placed on long-term injured reserve, giving the Blackhawks much-needed salary relief.
