Elias Pettersson of the Vancouver Canucks accepts the Calder Memorial Trophy awarded to the player selected as the most proficient in his first year of competition during the 2019 NHL Awards at the Mandalay Bay Events Center

The biggest names in hockey have descended upon Las Vegas as the NHL puts a bow on the 2018-19 season with their annual awards show.

NHL's General Manager of the Year: Don Sweeney of the Boston Bruins, the team that lost the Stanley Cup Final in seven games to the Blues. He also became just the fourth Russian to be win the MVP award. Kucherov is the second Lightning player to win the Hart trophy since Martin St. Louis, who won in 2004. Commissioner Gary Bettman told them in the GMs meeting Thursday what he then told the assembled media: The league is awaiting sign-off from the NHL Players' Association, and an announcement is expected for Saturday on Day 2 of the draft. He beat out two-time MVP Sidney Crosby of Pittsburgh and 2017 Hart victor Connor McDavid.

With an assist March 20 vs. Toronto, Dahlin passed Bobby Orr (38 points in 1966-67) for the second-most points by an National Hockey League defenseman before his 19th birthday. Kucherov served a one-game suspension for a risky hit during the series, and he scored his only two playoff points in the Game 4 defeat.

EPA Rolling Out New Coal-Friendly Rules
Yet nearly none of those emissions reductions are attributable to EPA's rule, the agency's analysis shows. In Appalachia, coal mines would produce at least 80 percent less coal in 2035 than they did in 2017.

Jack Adams Award as the league's top coach (based on regular-season performance): The Islanders' Barry Trotz, who beat out the Lightning's Jon Cooper and the Blues' Craig Berube.

After winning the Stanley Cup and subsequently leaving the Capitals last summer, Trotz engineered an impressive 23-point improvement by the Isles for their best single-season record since 1983-84, even after losing John Tavares to Toronto. He beat out Dallas' Ben Bishop and the New York Islanders' Robin Lehner. Lehner had an outstanding season after revealing during training camp that he has struggled with addiction and bipolar disorder. The third finalist for the award was Don Waddell of the Carolina Hurricanes, another team Boston faced during their post-season run.
