The Capitals have already taken one trophy out of Vegas, but they’ll be leaving with another later tonight courtesy of Conn Smythe-winning goal-scoring guru Alex Ovechkin and his 392nd (give or take) “Rocket” Richard Trophy.
Tune in for that, plus half-funny jokes, washed-up “celebrities”, hockey players in tuxes, and the best part: our own Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom repping the Cup Champs at the evening’s festivities.
Here’s the order of tonight’s presentations, for those interested:
- Ted Lindsay
- King Clancy
- Lady Byng
- EA SPORTS Cover Athlete
- Jack Adams
- GM of the Year
- O’Ree Community Hero
The fun kicks off tonight at 8:00 p.m. ET on NBCSN, or streaming on the NBC Sports app - so stick with us right here for all the magic of the NHL Awards!
