Mid-Season Winner: Barzal (59.7%)
End of Year Winner: Barzal (54.9%)
So remember, this isn’t the most valuable player like the Hart Trophy, this is the most “outstanding” player. And that’s Mathew Barzal. No question.
This play alone should cement his place as the most outstanding player for the New York Islanders this year:
That’s not his only highlight-reel goal from the season. Barzal put up a top-five of incredible goals this year this might just be the best of the bunch. Again, Barzal is without question the most outstanding player for the New York Islanders.
And you all basically agreed with Barzal getting essentially 55% of the vote. While he lost a few percentage points from the mid-season voting he’s still clearly top dog here.
Anthony Beauvillier surprisingly came in second with a measly 10.7% of the vote. Beau has been good this year. Specifically in the latter half. In his final eleven games, he put up seven goals and 13 points. Including a seven-game point streak to end the year. Hopefully, that continues into the playoffs.
