The NHL has officially announced the trio of talented rookies vying for the prestigious 2024 Calder Trophy, recognizing the league's most outstanding rookie player of the season. Among the esteemed finalists are Connor Bedard of the Chicago Blackhawks, Brock Faber representing the Minnesota Wild, and Luke Hughes from the New Jersey Devils.

Despite facing adversity in the form of a broken jaw that sidelined him for a portion of the campaign, Connor Bedard managed to amass an impressive 61 points in just 68 games, showcasing his undeniable talent and impact on the Blackhawks' lineup.

While Bedard's offensive prowess rightfully earns him recognition as a frontrunner for the Calder Trophy, Brock Faber's stellar defensive play and reliability on the blue line for the Minnesota Wild, along with Luke Hughes' dynamic playmaking abilities and contribution to the New Jersey Devils, have also propelled them into contention for the coveted award.
