While I find it repulsive that the NHL has to follow the NBA’s lead and host events in Las Vegas — instead of, you know, an NHL city — the nominees for the major awards will be announced this week.

Here’s the announcement from the league:


NEW YORK/TORONTO (April 17, 2010) — The three finalists for each of the NHL’s most prestigious regular-season awards will be announced over the next two weeks, beginning Monday with the top three vote-getters for the Vezina Trophy, which goes to the League’s top goaltender.

The 2010 NHL Awards, to be broadcast live from the Pearl Concert Theater inside the Palms Hotel Las Vegas on June 23, 2010, on VERSUS in the United States and CBC in Canada, will bring together the League’s best players, celebrities and other NHL VIPs in celebration of the season’s brightest stars.

Announcements will be made each day at noon, ET on www.nhl.com [1] and  the NHL’s daily  radio show, NHL Live! — broadcast live on Sirius XM Radio, streamed on NHL.com and simulcast on NHL Network weekdays from noon – 2 p.m. ET.
