Hart Trophy Voting: Jamie Benn 12th place

Jamie Benn was nominated for the Ted Lindsay award as the MVP as voted by the players. However, he wasn’t nominated for the Hart Trophy – the official MVP. John Tavares took his spot there.

Carey Price picked up the MVP after earlier winning the Vezina. Jamie Benn came in 12 place despite the players recognizing how special of a player he is.

Here are the results:

No other Dallas Star received a single vote. I’m not surprised that a Dallas Star didn’t ultimately win the award, but this is a pretty surprising showing. Especially for Benn. I was pretty convinced Benn would be in the top six to ten, but it wasn’t meant to be.

That wraps the awards. When the league announces the post season All Star teams we should see Benn’s name back in the news. That officially concludes the 2014-15 season. I, for one, am ready to move on to 2015-16.
