Kings coach John Stevens feels Anze Kopitar deserves Hart Trophy consideration.

"I think his performance has been outstanding," Stevens said. "I think he’s a key guy in every situation you can imagine in a hockey game. He provides leadership for our team. He produces offensively. He’s a premier penalty killer in the league, a faceoff guy, a power guy, a skill guy. I don’t see any reason why he shouldn’t be in that conversation." With 29 goals and 80 points in 72 contests, this has been one of Kopitar's top seasons offensively. There's some serious competition though, including Nikita Kucherov, Evgeni Malkin, and Nathan MacKinnon to name a few.
