What is the Calder Memorial Trophy?
The Calder Memorial Trophy is awarded the the NHL's best rookie player at the conclusion of the regular-season. The award is named after the first president of the NHL, Frank Calder. The minor league AHL (American Hockey League) awards its champion the Calder Cup, as the league is a 'Triple-A' affiliate of the NHL.
This award is the NHL's Rookie of the Year Award, first won by Carl Voss in 1932. Many notable players have won this award such as Alexander Ovechkin, Evgeni Malkin and Auston Matthews. Cale Makar of the Colorado Avalanche won last year's award, marking the first time a defenseman has won the Calder Memorial Trophy since Aaron Ekblad in 2014-'15.
