Ted Lindsay Award
The Ted Lindsay Award is the ultimate individual honour for a player to receive, as he is chosen by his peers via secret ballot, as the top player in the game for the season.
After competing fiercely against each other for 82 games a year, NHLPA members vote for the player who best embodies the skill, determination and competitive spirit of Ted Lindsay. To have the players you line-up against each and every night nominate you as the “Most Outstanding Player” represents the highest level of respect and the ultimate peer review.
