NHL awards 2017: Predicting the major trophy winners

Limited Youth Darryl Sittler Jersey
The NHL regular season ended Sunday and the 2017 Stanley Cup playoffs are set to begin Wednesday, which means we’re getting closer to June’s NHL awards ceremony.

There are several tight battles for the NHL’s most prestigious awards: Sidney Crosby vs. Connor McDavid for the Hart Trophy; Auston Matthews vs. Patrik Laine for the Calder Trophy; Brent Burns vs. Eric Karlsson for the Norris Trophy; and Devan Dubnyk vs. Sergei Bobrovsky for the Vezina Trophy.

[Matthews] wasn’t playing it, Siboko said. He came to get it and he came to show his name. Basically that’s what everything is about. I’m trying to come in the music game. Like, ‘Hey, this is me; this is what I have to offer.’ He came through and hit em’ with the four. I’m coming through just like that.

And just like that, a cult classic was born, though the song almost never saw the light of day.

I was surprised. Personally I wasn’t even going to release it, Siboko said. It was more for the people around me hearing it and being like, ‘Yo, release that, release that.’ I ended up putting the whole video idea together. I was like, ‘Let’s just chill in the hockey rink.’ Put it out there. It wasn’t even like a stunt or anything, it was just more like having fun.
