Brock Boeser a finalist for rookie of the year

Brock Boeser a finalist for rookie of the year

It's not a surprise in any way, but Vancouver Canucks star rookie Brock Boeser has been named as a finalist for the Calder Trophy (given to the top rookie), along with Mathew Barzal and Clayton Keller.

It should be noted that Boeser's 29 goals and 26 assists were put up in 20 less games, as his season was cut short after suffering a non-displaced fracture in his lower back on March 5. The 20-year-old was the 16th-overall pick of the 2015 NHL Draft.

Keller actually finished second in rookie scoring, passing Boeser late in the year and finishing with 23 goals and 42 assists while skating in all 82 games for the Coyotes.

France says Russian Federation obstructing OPCW experts' access to site of Douma attack
Over the past several days, Russian Federation has been issuing contradictory official statements on the chemical attack in Douma. The move came days after France said a "disciplinary procedure" for withdrawing the award was under way, the BBC reported.

The victor will be revealed at the National Hockey League awards on June 20. He would be the fifth player in Islanders history to win the Calder and first since defenseman Bryan Berard in 1996-97.

Earlier this season, Boeser was the MVP of the NHL's All-Star Game in Tampa's Amalie Arena, the same place he registered four points in the 2016 NCAA national championship game, giving UND its eighth national title.
