How could we have an awards ceremony without acknowledging a player like William Karlsson, who was an afterthought for two teams during the first three seasons of his career, never scoring more than nine goals, and now leads one of the best teams in the NHL with 35 goals, a league-leading plus-39 plus/minus rating and an otherworldly shooting percentage (24 percent)?
