List Rules Vote up the hockey players you think most deserve to be the NHL's 2017 most valuable player.

While there are several individual NHL awards, the Hart Memorial Trophy is awarded to the NHL's Most Valuable Player of that year. In the 2016-2017 NHL season, there are many deserving players, but only one can skate away as the 2017 Hart Memorial Trophy winner. Fans and analysts are already making their NHL MVP predictions, so we gathered the top players most likely to win the Hart Memorial Trophy in 2017. 

NHL players currently leading the league in points include Edmonton Oilers' center Connor McDavid, Pittsburgh Penguins' center Evgeni Malkin, and San Jose Sharks' defenseman Brent Burns. Several past Hart Memorial Trophy winners, like Washington Capitals' winger Alex Ovechkin and Pittsburgh Penguins' captain Sidney Crosby, are also in contention for the 2017 NHL MVP.    

Vote for the player most likely to be NHL's MVP of the 2016-2017 season. Feel free to add your favorite player or any MVP worthy player missing from the list.
