Odds as of November 25th at FanDuel Sportsbook.

  • [Nov 15]: Bedard is now a heavy -280 favorite in the Calder odds after recording back-to-back multi-goal games. He leads all NHL rookies with nine goals in 13 contests.
  • [Nov 3] Yotes rookie Logan Cooley is getting love from one particular sportsbook after his impressive start to the season. With eight points in 10 GP, FanDuel has shortened Cooley’s Calder odds to +440, although DK still lists him at +750.
  • [Sept 1]: Bedard’s odds have lengthened to -130 as more sportsbooks have opened their Calder markets. While no other rookie is gaining serious traction in the odds at the moment, this shift implies sportsbooks don’t view Bedard as a lock for the award.
  • [July 26]: Chicago Blackhawks rookie phenom Connor Bedard has opened as the heavy -155 favorite to win the 2024 Calder Trophy at DraftKings. Devils’ defenseman Luke Hughes has the next-best odds at +500, while Sabres’ goalie Devon Levi (+900) rounds out the top-three favorites.

Notable Calder Trends

  • A forward has won NHL Rookie of the Year in 10 of the past 13 years, including in 2022-23 when Seattle’s Matty Beniers took home the award.
  • 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).
