2022 NHL Awards: Nominees, winners, and how to watch
The NHL Awards, which will be shown live for the first time since 2019, will be a smaller event, hosted by Keenan Thompson once again. Everyone loves Keenan – he’s a natural host and comic – and the 2019 awards were a lot more organised and professional than the previous crazy ceremonies.
How to Watch the NHL Awards in 2022
The awards ceremony has been crammed between games three and four of the Stanley Cup Final. The film is just an hour long, and the most of the prizes have already been declared. Tonight at 6 p.m. Central, the broadcast will run on ESPN, ESPN+, or Fubo.tv.
Nominees for Tonight
The winners of the awards that haven’t been revealed yet (more on that later) will be announced live tonight. The Ted Lindsay Award, the Hart Trophy, the Vezina Trophy, the Norris Trophy, and the Norris Trophy are all up for grabs. Each award will be given out by a member of the NHL Community, as opposed to random celebrities as in the past. Jon Hamm was a great actor, and he will be missed.

The three contenders for General Manager of the Year will be named tonight as well, but the award will not be presented until the second round of the 2022 NHL Draft on July 7th. This is most likely to provide a bonus to the winner.
