Carey Price odds-on favorite to win Hart, Vezina

Carey Price odds-on favorite to win Hart, Vezina

One common theory about the NHL Awards this year was that we could see a goalie win the Vezina and the Hart. But unlike those seasons of Hasek-ian domination, the theory states that we could see different goalies win each award this June: Pekka Rinne of the Nashville Predators for the Vezina, and Carey Price of the Montreal Canadiens for the Hart.

The latest Bovada NHL odds have been released, and right now, Price is the odd-on favorite to win the Hart with Patrick Kane out of the mix:

Who will win the 2014 Hart Memorial Trophy as the NHL’s Most Valuable Player?      

Carey Price                               2/1

Alex Ovechkin                           3/1

John Tavares                            7/2

Sidney Crosby                          15/4

Ryan Getzlaf                             15/2

Jakub Voracek                          19/2

Nicklas Backstrom                    12/1

Pekka Rinne                              25/1

Rick Nash                                 30/1

Vladimir Tarasenko                    30/1

But he’s also the odds-on favorite to win the Vezina as well:

Who will win the Vezina Trophy for being the NHL’s top Goaltender? 

Carey Price  (MON)                    5/14

Pekka Rinne (NAS)                    8/5

Marc Andre Fleury (PIT)             18/1

Braden Holtby (WAS)                26/1

(Marc-Andre Fleury, Vezina finalist, is well-deserved but no less mind blowing.)

Here are the rest of the awards odds:
