A glance at the National Hockey League’s major awards, and the 2013-14 nominees for each, with winners to be announced on Tuesday:

HART TROPHY

MVP to his team

Nominees: Ryan Getzlaf, Anaheim; Claude Giroux, Philadelphia; Sidney Crosby, Pittsburgh.

Our pick: Crosby wins it for the first time since 2007. He had 104 points during the regular season, 17 more than Getzlaf, who was second in the NHL with 87. Picture the Penguins without Crosby. It’s not pretty.

NORRIS TROPHY

Top defenceman

Nominees: Zdeno Chara, Boston; Duncan Keith, Chicago; Shea Weber, Nashville

Our pick: Chara, who has not won since the 2008-09 season, with four different winners since. Overlook that Chara was 24th in defenceman scoring. He controls the game like no other from the back end, against the stiffest competition.

VEZINA TROPHY

Top goaltender
