What is the Rocket Richard Award?

The Rocket Richard Award is given annually to the NHL's leading goal scorer. Washington Capitals' Alex Ovechkin has won this award seven times over the past 10 years, while the Eastern Conference has seen a winner in 11 straight seasons. Corey Perry in 2010-11 was the last Western Conference player to win the award.

How to read the Rocket Richard Trophy Odds

The "Rocket" Richard Trophy is named after Montreal Canadiens' Hall of Famer Maurice Richard and is awarded to the NHL player who scored the most goals in a season. The award was first handed out in the 1998-99 season with the original winner being Teemu Selanne of Anaheim. Only one season didn't have a winner, which came in the lockout campaign of 2004-05.

The player who has captured the most "Rocket" Richard Trophies is Washington Capitals' forward Alex Ovechkin with eight goal titles. Ovechkin has led the league in goals in six of the past seven seasons, including 51 goals last season.

At the time the season came to a halt in mid-March, Ovechkin was tied with Boston Bruins' forward David Pastrnak for most goals in the NHL with 48, while Toronto Maple Leafs' star Auston Matthews is one behind at 47.

Ovechkin came into the season as the favorite at 4/1 odds to win the trophy, while Pastrnak sat at hefty 40/1 odds to finish with the most goals.
