NHL awards odds: Crosby favored for MVP
Sidney Crosby missed half a season due to injury and Alexander Ovechkin missed half a season due to indifference.
Oddsmakers believe Crosby will win the league MVP award regardless, making the Penguins captain the favorite in Hart Trophy betting odds.
New York Islanders stud John Tavares was also nominated but is a +500 longshot.
Crosby's teammate Kris Letang is the third betting choice to win the Norris Trophy as best defenceman. Oddsmakers at Bovada made Habs blueliner P.K. Subban the favorite there at -130.
Montreal rookie Brendan Gallagher and Florida's Jonathan Huberdeau are locked in a tight battle atop the Rookie of the Year odds list. Brandon Saad of the Blackhawks is a distant third betting choice at 10-1.
