Connor Bedard of Chicago Blackhawks

Connor Bedard is the new franchise player of the Chicago Blackhawks, after the Blackhawks won the NHL draft lottery. It was the first really good news the Blackhawks have had in the past six years, as they have missed the NHL playoffs five of the past six seasons.

Bedard is currently known as one of the young stars in the NHL and a generational talent playing at a similar elite level to Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Auston Matthews of the Toronto Maple Leafs when they were close to his age.

The Calder Trophy is the NHL's award given to the Rookie of the Year. Below I will discuss his odds to win the Calder, as well as his odds to win the Hart Trophy and other props.

Who Has The Best Odds To Win the Calder Trophy?

Connor Bedard still has the best odds to win the Calder Trophy, improving his chances to win the award at most sportsbooks. As of Dec. 6, he had tallied at least one point in three of his last four games despite the Blackhawks losing all of them.

Bedard has separated himself from other Calder Trophy contenders in this rookie class, with the biggest threats coming from players who were picked prior to this year's NHL Draft. That includes Luke Hughes (fourth overall in 2021) of the New Jersey Devils at +1000 and Logan Cooley (third overall pick in 2022) of the Arizona Coyotes at +1300.

His top competition from this year's draft is Leo Carlsson of the Anaheim Ducks, as he was picked second overall and had 13 points (eight goals and five assists) as of Dec. 6. Carlsson is further down the betting board at +3500, tied with fellow 2023 draftee Adam Fantilli of the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Fantilli had 12 points (five goals and seven assists) as of Dec. 6. Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender Joseph Woll is also in the mix at +3000, but he was drafted back in 2016.

Can Connor Bedard Win the Hart Trophy?

Yes, Connor Bedard can technically win the Hart Trophy. However, based on his current odds, Bedard has little chance to be named the NHL's MVP in his first year. Bedard's MVP odds are listed at +15000 (0.7% chance based on implied probability) with the Blackhawks riding a four-game skid as of Dec. 6 and winning just twice in 12 games.

No rookie has ever won the Calder Trophy and Hart Trophy in the same year.

The top four players in consideration for the Hart Trophy are Connor McDavid (+350) of the Edmonton Oilers, Jack Hughes (+410) of the New Jersey Devils, David Pastrnak (+460) of the Boston Bruins and Nikita Kucherov (+460) of the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Kucherov, Pastrnak and Hughes were still among the Top 10 scorers in the NHL as of Dec. 6 while McDavid is a three-time winner of the award.
