NHL betting odds: Division winners, major awards

The Our Line Starts crew takes a look at key players who will be absent for 2020-21, including Jonathan Toews, Nikita Kucherov and Henrik Lundqvist, their impact and how their respective clubs will fare without them.

We took a look at the 2021 Stanley Cup favorites on Tuesday, so let’s dive a little deeper into some more NHL odds, courtesy of our friends at PointsBet.

The division favorites are who you’d expect for the most part. The East will be a battle; the West is quite top heavy; the Central is Tampa and everyone else; while the all-Canadian North could be wide open.

On to four of the major NHL Awards now. Reigning league MVP Leon Draisaitl is +750 and faces a tall task in repeating in 2021. This race have its handful of favorites, but it’s quite wide open. If Elias Pettersson (+2000) ends up leading the Canucks back to the postseason with a 70-80-point season, would it be wild to see him winning the Hart?

The No. 1 overall pick gets top billing a lot, but the 2021 rookie class has some depth. Outside of Alexis Lafreniere (+275) in New York, he’ll battle his goaltender for the Calder, along with Kirill Kaprizov (+400), who has finally arrived in Minnesota. What about Lafreniere’s draft class mates Quinton Byfield (+800) and Tim Stutzle (+1100)? Depending on usage and how much time he gets in the NHL compared to the AHL this season, don’t overlook Bowen Byram (+2500) in Colorado.

Calder Trophy

Alexis Lafreniere (+275)
Igor Shesterkin (+300)
Kirill Kaprizov (+400)
Quinton Byfield (+800)
Tim Stutzle (+1100)
Grigori Denisenko(+1200)
Ilya Sorokin (+1500)
