Fans will soon know who was this season's most valuable player.

Columbus Blue Jackets netminder Sergei Bobrovsky, Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby, and Edmonton Oilers center Connor McDavid are this year's finalists for the Hart Trophy.

Bobrovsky was the NHL's top goaltender this season, owning a league-best 2.06 goals-against average and .931 save percentage, leading the Blue Jackets to their best season in franchise history, as they finished with 108 points.

Crosby ended the season as the NHL's leading goal scorer, as the Penguins center finished with 44 goals. He was second in league scoring with 89 points, behind only McDavid. Crosby is a two-time winner of the Hart Trophy, last capturing the award in 2013-14.

McDavid was the league's top scorer, finishing the season with 100 points, doing so in only his second NHL campaign. The Oilers captain led the team to a 47-26-9 record, as Edmonton qualified for the postseason for the first time since 2006.
