On Saturday, the NHL announced the finalists for the league’s most valuable player award.
Patrick Kane, Sidney Crosby and Jamie Benn were named the three finalists Saturday for the Hart Memorial Trophy.
Kane, 27, became the first American player to win the Art Ross Trophy this season with a career-high 106 points. He is trying to become the first Blackhawks player to win the Hart Trophy since Stan Mikita won the award in seasons in 1967 and 1968.
Kane, Benn and Washington netminder Braden Holtby were named finalists for the Ted Lindsay Award, the most valuable player as voted on by the players, on Friday night.
