Tampa Bay Lightning forward Nikita Kucherov has been named a finalist for the Hart Trophy for the 2018-2019 season. The award is given annually to the most-valuable-player in the NHL. Kucherov is joined by Connor McDavid of the Edmonton Oilers and Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins as finalists. (Yahoo!)

Fantasy Impact:

It would be surprising if Kucherov did not ultimately win the award too, as he paced the entire league with 128 points on a team that tied the NHL regular-season record for wins with 62. He should be one of the first two players off-the-board in fantasy drafts next season.
