Travis Hamonic suffered a sprained ankle in the third period of the Islanders' 5-4 overtime loss to Winnipeg on Sunday night.

His status is uncertain pending further evaluation, but he isn't expected to play on Tuesday and might be sidelined longer than that. The good news is that his ankle appears to have avoided a serious sprain. Hamonic and Andrew MacDonald form New York's shutdown defense pair, so his loss would leave a sizable hole on the team's back end. The 22-year-old blueliner is averaging just over 24 minutes of ice time, while posting three points and 14 hits in five games.

Eric Gryba has been placed on unconditional waivers by the Edmonton Oilers.

If Gryba goes unclaimed then the Oilers plan to buy out the final season of his two-year, $1.8 million contract. That would free up $600K in cap space in 2018-19, but cost $300K in 2019-20. He had two assists and 31 penalty minutes in 21 games last season.

The New York Islanders and Barry Trotz are reportedly close to an agreement.

Trotz guided the Washington Capitals to the Stanley Cup. He left the franchise as the automatic two-year extension triggered was below market value and reportedly the negotiations with the Capitals on an alternate extension fell through. Getting Trotz should provide the Islanders with new optimism following their disappointing 2017-18 campaign. It might also help sway John Tavares into staying.

Winning the Ted Lindsay Award took Connor McDavid by surprise.

"I’m actually shocked," McDavid said. "I definitely didn’t think I would win it, just because everything was made about not being in the playoffs. I didn’t think there was much of a chance." It's seems fair to say that it was the Oilers' failure to make the playoffs that kept him from being one of the finalists for the Hart Trophy, which goes to the league's most valuable player and is voted on by the writers' association. However, the Ted Lindsay Award, which goes to the 'most outstanding player', is voted on by the players and it seems for them the fact that the Oilers struggled as a team was less a factor when judging McDavid's individual performance. McDavid finished the season with 41 goals and a league-high 108 points in 82 games.

New Jersey Devils forward Taylor Hall won the Hart Memorial Trophy on Wednesday night.

The Hart Trophy is "given to the player judged to be the most valuable to his team". Hall certainly fit the bill in 2017-18. The 26-year-old finished the year with 39 goals and 93 points in 76 games last season. Hall is one of the huge reasons why the Devils went from being last in the Eastern Conference two years ago to being a Wild Card team last season. This was the first Hart Trophy of his career. Colorado's Nathan MacKinnon and Los Angeles' Anze Kopitar were the other two nominees.

Golden Knights general manager George McPhee was named GM of the year on Wednesday night.

This is hardly surprising considering he built an expansion team that not only won their division but also made it all the way to the Stanley Cup Final. Vegas finished 2017-18 with an incredible 51-24-7 record in their inaugural season. This is the first time McPhee wins the award. He beat out Winnipeg's Kevin Cheveldayoff and Tampa Bay's Steve Yzerman. This was the fourth individual award of the night for the Golden Knights after Gerard Gallant (Jack Adams), William Karlsson (Lady Byng) and Deryk Engelland (Mark Messier Leadership Award) won a trophy of their own on Wednesday.

Pekka Rinne won his first Vezina Trophy at the NHL Awards ceremony on Wednesday night.

The Vezina Trophy is "given to the goalkeeper adjudged to be the best at this position as voted by the general managers of all NHL clubs". Rinne had his share of struggles during the playoffs, but he managed to post 42-13-4 record, a 2.31 goals-against-average and a .927 save percentage during the regular season. Rinne had been a finalist for the award multiple times, so it's nice to finally see him win one. Winnipeg's Connor Hellebuyck and Tampa Bay's Andrei Vasilevskiy were the other finalists for the award.

Gerard Gallant won the Jack Adams Award at the NHL Awards ceremony on Wednesday night.

The Jack Adams Award is given "to the NHL coach adjudged to have contributed the most to his team's success". Gallant was a shoe-in for this award, as he led the expansion Vegas Golden Knights to a Pacific Division crown in their first year. The Golden Knights finished the season with a remarkable 51-24-7 record and they also made it all the way to the Stanley Cup Final. Boston's Bruce Cassidy and Colorado's Jared Bednar were also nominated for the award in 2018.

Anze Kopitar took home the Frank J. Selke Trophy at the NHL Awards on Wednesday night.

The award is "given to the forward who best excels in the defensive aspects of the game". Kopitar has been one of the premiere two-way forwards in the league for a number of years. The 30-year-old had 35 goals and 92 points in 82 games during the regular season. This is the second time he wins the award in the last three years. He beat out Philadelphia's Sean Couturier and Boston's Patrice Bergeron.

Islanders forward Mathew Barzal won the Calder Memorial Trophy at the NHL Awards on Wednesday night.

The award is given to "the player selected as the most proficient in his first year of competition in the National Hockey League" (rookie of the year). Barzal had an impressive 22 goals and 85 points in 82 games during his first full year. The 21-year-old beat out Vancouver's Brock Boeser and Arizona's Clayton Keller. Barzal will continue to be a huge part of the Islanders' franchise going forward. If John Tavares were to leave in free agency this summer, Barzal would become the face of the franchise.

Victor Hedman won the James Norris Memorial Trophy on Wednesday night.

The award is given to "the defenseman who demonstrates throughout the season the greatest all-round ability in the position." This is the first time that the Lightning defenseman has taken home the award. The 27-year-old had 17 goals and 63 points in 77 games during the regular season. He beat out Nashville's P.K. Subban and Los Angeles' Drew Doughty.

Connor McDavid took home the Ted Lindsay Award on Wednesday night.

The award is "presented annually to the 'most outstanding player' in the NHL as voted by fellow members of the National Hockey League Players' Association". This is the second year in a row that he takes home this award. The Oilers missed the playoffs this season, but that wasn't McDavid's fault. The 21-year-old had 41 goals and 108 points in 82 games during the regular season. He beat out New Jersey's Taylor Hall and Colorado's Nathan MacKinnon.
