Colorado's Gabriel Landeskog wins Calder Trophy as year's best rookie

LAS VEGAS, Nev. - Colorado's Gabriel Landeskog got the best of Ryan Nugent-Hopkins this time around.

Selected second overall behind Nugent-Hopkins at last year's draft, Landeskog edged him and New Jersey's Adam Henrique to win the Calder Trophy on Wednesday night.

Landeskog and Nugent-Hopkins tied for the rookie scoring lead with 52 points this season—although the Avalanche forward played 20 more games.

However, Landeskog finished with a plus-20 rating while playing more than 18 minutes per game.

Landeskog is the first Swede to be named the NHL's rookie of the year since Daniel Alfredsson in 1995-96.
