Connor McDavid - Edmonton Oilers (41 goals, 116 points)

Edmonton Oilers star Connor McDavid looks to go for the hat-trick as winning the Ted Lindsay award for 2019 would make it three awards in a row, having won it in 2017 and 2018. McDavid finished the year with 41 goals, 75 assists, and a 1.49 points-per-game average. He had a 17.1 shooting percentage on 240 shots.

When it came to special teams, McDavid registered nine goals and 33 assists. He’s also the only nominee with any shorthanded points - scoring one goal and one assist. He had nine game-winning goals and three overtime winners. He was involved on 50.6 per cent of all Edmonton Oilers goals this season.

Patrick Kane - Chicago Blackhawks (44 goals, 110 points)

Like McDavid, Chicago’s Patrick Kane is no stranger to the Ted Lindsay award, having last won it in 2016. Kane finished his 2019 campaign with 44 goals and 66 assists, adding up to 110 points - the third best in the league after Nikita Kucherov and Connor McDavid.

In 81 games played, Kane averaged 1.36 points-per-game. On the powerplay, he contributed with nine goals and 30 assists. He had seven game-winning goals including three overtime winners. He finished with significantly more shots than his counterparts (341) and therefore has the lowest shooting percentage of the three nominees (12.9 percent).

Nikita Kucherov - Tampa Bay Lightning (41 goals, 128 points)

The Lightning’s Nikita Kucherov will take home the Art Ross trophy this year and is looking to add to his hardware collection with the Ted Lindsay award. By the end of his 2019 campaign, Kucherov set a record for most points in one season scored by a Russian-born player. He tallied 41 goals and 87 assists to finish with a league-leading 128 points on the season.

Kucherov finished the regular season with a 1.56 points-per-game average. He took 246 shots, leaving him with a 16.7 shooting percentage. He was also a master on the powerplay, racking up 15 goals and 48 points with the man advantage. He had eight game-winning goals and finished with a plus-24.
