Notable Calder Trends

  • A forward has won NHL Rookie of the Year in nine of the past 12 years, although two of the past three winners have been defenseman (Cale Makar, 2020 & Moritz Seider, 2022)
  • No goalie had won the Calder since Steve Mason (Columbus) in 2009; goalies often take longer to develop in the NHL than skaters.
  • No team has produced back-to-back Rookie of the Year winners since the 68-69 Bruins (Bobby Orr & Derek Sanderson).
