Conn Smythe Trophy Odds 2023: Contenders
Sergei Bobrovsky +200
Despite a goalie only winning this award once since 2013, Bobrovsky is currently the favorite. His journey throughout these playoffs has been nothing short of amazing, solidifying his spot as the starting goaltender and propelling them to the brink of the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time in two decades. Bobrovsky’s playoff performances have been exceptional. He has recorded a save percentage of .935 and a goals-against average of 2.15 in 13 playoff games. If Florida wins the Stanley Cup, it is going to be because Bobrovsky played incredible, which would make his case for the Conn Smythe Trophy.
Matthew Tkachuk +360
Tkachuk has been a driving force for the upset-specialist Florida Panthers in the 2023 NHL Playoffs. An overtime goal in Game 1, an overtime goal in Game 2, and a series-clinching goal with four seconds left in Game 4 is all Tkachuk accomplished in just the Eastern Conference Finals against the Hurricanes. The Panthers star has 21 points in the playoffs through three rounds. He was Florida’s leader in the regular season and has shined every time the Panthers have needed him in these playoffs.
Jack Eichel +380
The only Golden Knight’s player with more points than Jonathan Marchessault is Jack Eichel. He has tallied 18 points (six goals and 12 assists) throughout these playoffs, which is tied for fourth most overall. His play on the ice has been instrumental in guiding the Golden Knights toward the Stanley Cup Trophy. The former second-overall pick in the 2015 NHL Draft has this team shining brighter than the Vegas Strip.
Jonathan Marchessault +600
In 17 games this postseason, Jonathan Marchessault has tallied 17 points (nine goals and eight assists), the second-most on the team. The 32-year-old was amazing in the Western Conference Finals with seven points in six games, including two multi-point performances. He has also been clutch throughout this postseason with three game-winning goals for the Golden Knights. Vegas has gotten a lot out of its players this spring, but Marchessault has been one of the most impactful.
Adin Hill +1100
Hill’s journey from backup goalie to starter has been an amazing storyline for this year’s playoffs. Big questions surrounded this Knights squad once Laurent Brossoit went down with an injury in Game 3 against the Oilers. Hill shutout the Oilers the rest of the way with 24 saves in a 5-1 win. Hill enters the Stanley Cup Final with a 7-3 record, a .932 save percentage, and a 2.30 goals-against average. Among goalies with at least eight games played this postseason, Hill is in the top five in GAA and save percentage.
Pick to win the Conn Smythe Trophy:
Jack Eichel +380
