NHL futures surrounding the top rookie honors in the NHL went a bit wonky when favorite Connor Bedard went down with a broken jaw, but his return to play has brought balance to the force.

Bedard's odds dropped significantly as weeks passed by without him playing, but seven points in six games since returning has launches the prodigy back into a massive favorite.

Latest Calder Trophy odds update

2/27/2024: I hope the rest of the rookies enjoyed the spotlight while they could, because Connor Bedard is once again back to being the best freshman in the NHL. Bedard's return has shortened his odds from -200 to as high as -550, while players like Luke Hughes saw their odds lengthen from +750 to the +2,000 range. Brock Faber is still in second, but unless No. 98 misses another chunk of time, Faber stands no chance in catching up.

Understanding NHL Calder odds

Most sportsbooks will display odds in the American format as listed above. When the regular season is nearly finished and a consensus has emerged, you might see a player with a minus sign (-) ahead of his odds, like this:

  • Connor Bedard -400

The (-) means that Bedard is the odds-on favorite, and a bettor would need to wager $400 to win $100. Other contenders in the Calder race might have plus (+) odds to win.

  • Logan Cooley +650

Here, a bettor stood to profit $650 for every $100 wagered. 

If American odds aren't your thing, simply use a tool like our odds converter to switch the odds to decimal or fractional format. Most online sportsbooks also give you the option to change the odds format that you see.

NHL Calder Trophy trends
