The NHL futures markets saw some wild shifts after Round 1 came to a close, with both the Stanley Cup odds and Conn Smythe odds being thrown into a whirl. Rounds 2 and 3 proved to be just as dramatic with both Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl getting sent packing by Vegas before also sending the Stars to the showers on its road to the Cup Final.
Despite all of the noise and drama, Jonathan Marchessault landed the Conn Smythe Trophy after putting together a 10-game point streak to close out the playoffs. Marchy took over the lead after Game 2 and never relinquished it. As his son would say "He won,"!

Latest Conn Smythe Trophy odds update
6/14/23: With 25 points in 22 games including a registered point in all five outings of the Stanley Cup Final, Jonathan Marchessault is your 2023 Conn Smythe winner.
Previous Conn Smythe betting action
6/13/23: With Game 5 taking place Tuesday night, odds have relatively stayed the same since Vegas' 3-2 win in Game 4. Jonathan Marchessault is still the heavy favorite to capture the Conn Smythe, going anywhere from -400 to -600. One thing to note is while most books stayed the same, Marchessault fell from -500 to -400 at DraftKings, while Jack Eichel and Adin Hill's odds shortened slightly. The Golden Knights will have a shot to tuck in Florida at 8:00 p.m. ET.
6/11/23: As quickly as the Panthers' stock rose, it plummeted. Vegas avoided blowing a 3-0 lead in Game 4 to capture a commanding 3-1 series lead as the teams shift back to Sin City for potentially the final time. Marchessault recorded a point for the ninth straight game and is the consensus favorite across the board to capture the Conn Smythe. Below him far off in the distance are his teammates Jack Eichel and Adin Hill.
6/9/23: Panthers are on the move in Conn Smythe odds after a 3-2 OT win in Game 3 to keep them off the brink of elimination. Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 25 of 27 shots to see the pre-series favorite rise back into the Top 3 on the board. Likewise, Matthew Tkachuk saw his stock rise after potting both a goal and an assist in Game 3.
6/8/23: Odds remain the same in the Conn Smythe house since the day after Game 2, with Jonathan Marchessault standing on top across the board. Jack Eichel and Adin Hill remain in the Top 3 but Thursday night's affair will be sure to give the odds board another complete shakeup. If you're a believer in the Panthers, now would be the time to invest in Matthew Tkachuk and Sergei Bobrovsky.6/6/23: What was once a two-man heat between Bobrovsky and Eichel is now led by one Golden Knight across the board — Jonathan Marchessault (-105). The former Panther who was swept away by Vegas has caught fire at the right time, scoring seven times in the last games while leading the team in goals with 12. With Vegas up 2-0, the Top 3 spots are now filled up by two other Golden Knights. Eichel — who leads the team with 22 points — and Adin Hill, who has been spectacular between the pipes for Vegas. Matthew Tkachuk (+1,300) and Bobo (+1,300) did enter the Cup Final as the Top 2 so they're still hovering around the middle of the board, but one more loss would seemingly wipe them off the board.
6/5/23: The Vegas Golden Knights took Game 1 of the Cup Final, winning 5-2 on home ice, which also led to Vegas star Jack Eichel jumping up to the consensus favorite to win. Eichel posted two assists and two shots, while leading all Golden Knights forward with 21:27 of ice time in Game 1, and now sits third in playoff scorer with 20 points. He's slightly ahead of Florida's Sergei Bobrovsky at some sportsbooks, although a few operators have them tied — or even have Bobo still slightly ahead. Matthew Tkachuk, the Panthers' leading scorer, was firmly in the No. 2 spot heading into the series, but in now ranging from 4/1 to 6/1, he's mixed among the second-tier of candidates, alongside Vegas' Jonathan Marchessault and Adin Hill.
6/1/23: With the Cup Final starting tomorrow, it's still Panthers stars Sergei Bobrovsky and Matthew Tkachuk as the favorites, with Bobo basically installed at 2/1 at most major books and Tkachuk anywhere form +290 to +360.
After them, however, are a gaggle of Golden Knights, with Jack Eichel, Jonathan Marchessault, William Karlsson, Mark Stone, and Adin Hill all generally 12/1 or shorter — and then after there are no players consistently within even +5,000.
Also worth noting is that there are no defensemen within the consensus Top 10 on the Conn Smythe board, a slight surprise considering there are some high-quality blueliners on each team with the likes of Brandon Montour, Aaron Ekblad, Shea Theodore, and Alex Pietrangelo.
5/30/23: Vegas opened up as the Stanley Cup favorite, but it's a pair of Panthers who stand atop the odds board still with Sergei Bobrovsky and Matthew Tkachuk leading the way. However, what follows them is a barrage of Golden Knights who are primed to take the top spot away from either of the Cats. If Game 1 goes to Vegas, expect a major shakeup to the Conn Smythe odds.
5/28/23: With Florida still awaiting the conclusion of the Dallas/Vegas series, Sergei Bobrovsky and Matthew Tkachuk still remain atop the board with Jack Eichel and Mark Stone now much farther behind. It's also important to note since the Stars pushing this series to Game 6, Roope Hintz (+1,600), and Jason Robertson (+2,200) have cracked back into the Top 10.
5/25/23: Get out the brooms as Florida completed the four-game sweep against the Carolina Hurricanes, with Matthew Tkachuk (+350) scoring his third game winner of the series. Only one man stands above Tkachuk on the odds board, and that's netminder Sergei Bobrovsky at +200, who has been a brick wall this postseason. Following the two Florida studs are a pair of Knights in Jack Eichel (+400) and Mark Stone (+650) who will look to pull off a sweep of their own tonight against the Stars.
5/23/23: After Matthew Tkachuk's overtime heroics landed his team up 2-0 and on top of the odds board, Sergei Bobrovsky's Game 3 shutout has bumped the netminder's odds to +210 while Tkachuk sits at +400. Joining the pair of Cats in the Top 3 is Jack Eichel, whose odds are sitting at +500 as he leads his team in points amidst his playoff debut. Depending on who wins tonight, either Eichel or Roope Hintz (+1,600) will see their odds improve greatly.
5/21/23: What's better than being the overtime hero in one game? Being the overtime hero twice in as many outings to steal both games on the road as an underdog. That's exactly what Matthew Tkachuk did, rightfully moving his odds from +450 to +350. Sergei Bobrovsky has also been a stud this postseason and has moved into the second slot at +475. Rounding out the Top 3 is Jack Eichel, as Vegas is just three wins away from the Cup Final.
5/20/23: After potting the winner in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Final in the fourth overtime period, the Panthers' Matthew Tkachuk has assumed the favorite's role to win the Conn Smythe at +400. Jack Eichel is close behind for the Golden Knights at +450. And though it was almost unthinkable less than a month ago, Florida goalie Sergei Bobrovsky is the third choice at +700.
5/16/23: The stage for the Conference Finals is set and so to is the Conn Smythe odds board, with teams from all four remaining teams taking up the Top 10 spots. Jack Eichel and Sebastian Aho pace the pack at +600, with Matthew Tkachuk (+750) and Roope Hintz (+900) right behind them.
5/15/23: It seems like there's been a curse placed on Conn Smythe favorites. Linus Ullmark and David Pastrnak opened as faves... and they're gone. Leon Draisaitl and Connor McDavid were favored after Round 1... and they're gone. With so many big guns out, a Top 3 of Jack Eichel, Sebastian Aho, and Matthew Tkachuk has taken shape. Tkachuk finds himself in the third spot after failing to register a goal in the five-game series against Toronto, but he still remains alive. With nine of the Top 10 spots occupied by teams who already advanced, it'll be interesting to see how tonight's Game 7 matchup in Dallas shakes up the board.
5/11/23: Familiar faces are once again atop the odds board as both Leon Draisaitl and Connor McDavid have slid back into the Top 2 slots after Game 4s victory against Vegas. On the other side, Matthew Tkachuk lost his favorite status after failing to put away the Toronto Maple Leafs in Sunrise last night. Lastly, if you're a big fan of the Carolina Hurricanes I would hop on Sebastian Aho at +700 while you can, because that number will surely improve in the book's favor if the Canes advance tonight.
5/10/23: Matthew Tkachuk still remains the favorite at +550 as his team looks to get out the brooms and send the Toronto Maple Leafs back to where they rightfully belong in May, the 8:38 a.m. tee time. Sebastian Aho has also shot up into the Top 2 spot as his team is one win away from the Conference Finals, although he failed to register a point in the Canes' Game 4 win. Rounding out the Top 3 is still Draisaitl, but expect to see potential shockwaves sent throughout the odds board if either the Panthers or Oilers lose tonight.
5/8/23: Matthew Tkachuk still remains the favorite at +550, but he now has company at the top with Leon Draisaitl sporting the same odds after another multi-goal performance against Vegas. Tkachuk and Drai have easily been the two most impressive players offensively this postseason, and now the Panthers are just one win away from the Eastern Conference Finals. Rounding out the Top 3 is none other than Connor McDavid, who will look to pick up a series lead in Edmonton tonight. Meanwhile, both Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner have fallen well out of the Top 10 after last night's loss in Sunrise.
5/6/23: McDavid and Draisaitl may very well be back on top if they can pull off a win in tonight's matchup against Vegas, but for now we have two new faces in Matthew Tkachuk and Sebastian Aho. Tkachuk (+700) has shown he's worth every penny of $9.5 million cap hit, leading the Panthers to two victories in Toronto after upsetting Boston. The right winger is tied for the postseason lead with 15 points in just nine games. Meanwhile, Aho has played a pivotal factor in Carolina's playoff run thus far, leading his team with nine points in eight games. Both Tkachuk and Aho find themselves with 2-0 series leads in Round 2 and could very well face off next round.
5/4/23: Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl opened Round 2 as the Top 2 favorites for the Conn Smythe, but it was Leon who really took the ball and ran with it, scoring four goals in Edmonton's Game 1 loss in Vegas. Despite the loss the Oilers' star duo is still Top 2, but a new face has entered the Top 3 in Sebastian Aho. Carolina's center has played a pivotal part in his team's success thus far with eight points in seven games.
5/2/23: With the exits of Pastrnak and Ullmark, the new favorite is Edmonton Oilers superstar Connor McDavid at +550 following the Oilers' series win over LA. Behind McDavid is his superstar teammate, Leon Draisaitl, at 8/1 (up from +1,200), while Toronto's dynamic duo of Mitch Marner and Auston Matthews each sit at +900 as the Leafs both got the first-round monkey off their back... AND don't have to face the Bruins in Round 2. Colorado's departure also opens the door for the Dallas Stars, who are heavily favored against Seattle in the second round, and as such forward Roope Hintz and star goalie Jake Oettinger also jumped up the odds board, each sitting at 12/1. Joining the Top 10 for the first time is Akira Schmid (+1,200), the New Jersey Devils goaltender who almost singlehandedly stole the series against the New York Rangers. He posted a 1.38 GAA and a .951 SV% in five starts, and is the proverbial "hot goalie" at the moment.
4/27/23: David Pastrnak and Linus Ullmark began to pull away from the pack, but a mishap in Game 5 cost the B's a chance to advance and ultimately hurting the Boston duo's Conn Smythe odds. Connor McDavid has seen his odds shorten to +750 after his team took a 3-2 lead against the Los Angeles Kings, while Mitch Marner and Auston Matthews share 11/1 odds as they sit on the brink of advancing to Round 2.
4/24/23: Following a dominating 6-2 road win, to take a commanding 3-1 series lead, David Pastrnak and Linus Ullmark have pulled away from the pack a bit as the Conn Smythe favorites, sitting at +450 and +650, respectively.Following the two Bs are Western Conference superstars Nathan MacKinnon and Connor McDavid at +10/1 each, then we have Toronto's top two forwards, Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner, at +1,200 each, while New York Rangers stud Igor Shesterkin is at 14/1 and Cale Makar is the only blueliner near the top at +1,500.
4/21/23: Through the first set of home games, it's still the Boston Bruins' stars leading the Conn Smythe odds board, as David Pastrnak (+700) and Linus Ullmark (+900) lead the way. However, they have both come back to the pack following a shocking 6-3 loss to Florida in Game 2, with Edmonton Oilers star Connor McDavid on their heels at 10/1, while the biggest jump has been New York Rangers backstop Igor Shesterkin, who went from +1,600 to even with McDavid after stopping 49 of 51 shots to help the Blueshirts win both games in New Jersey (by identical 5-1 scores) and currently sit as one of two teams with a 2-0 series lead. The other team up 2-0 is the Carolina Hurricanes, and their star — Sebastian Aho — also saw strong movement on the odds board, going to 16/1 after sitting at +2,000.
4/19/23: Although everyone has played just one game, the market has wasted no time in swapping odds significantly over the last couple of days. David Pastrnak (+600) remains the betting favorite, but teammates Linus Ullmark (+900) and Brad Marchand (+2,000) have also seen their odds improve. Another new face on the board is Carolina's Sebastian Aho (+2,000) after scoring a goal in the Canes' 2-1 win against New York. The biggest drops came from Connor McDavid (+800 to +1,200) and Nathan MacKinnon (+1,600 to +2,200) as both players lost steam with a Game 1 loss.
4/16/23: David Pastrnak of the Boston Bruins opened as the +700 betting favorite to hoist the Conn Smythe on Friday and still remains there. The only real significant odds move out of the gates has been Nathan MacKinnon's odds moving from +1,400 to +1,600 and Cale Makar's shifting from +1,600 to +1,800 — signifying bettors aren't totally sold on the Avs winning the Cup heading into the playoffs.
4/14/23: David Pastrnak of the Boston Bruins opened as the +700 betting favorite to hoist the Conn Smythe. It shouldn't come as a surprise, as he's the leasing scorer on a team that's regarded by many as the best in the NHL. Close behind Pastrnak is Linus Ullmark, the B's starting netminder, at +900. Connor McDavid opened as the second-choice in the Conn Smythe betting at +800. If the Edmonton Oilers win their first Stanley Cup since 1989-90, it will likely be because the Art Ross and "Rocket" Richard winner willed them to it.
Understanding Conn Smythe Trophy odds
Sportsbooks will post Conn Smythe Trophy odds as early as the beginning of the playoffs. These NHL futures are constantly adjusted throughout the postseason depending on how well players perform as well as their team success. Sportsbooks will also adjust the NHL awards odds based on handle and liability to certain players.
Conn Smythe Trophy odds will usually look like this:
- Nathan MacKinnon +290
This means that on a $100 bet, you'll stand to win $290 if MacKinnon takes home the Conn Smythe Trophy. If it's close to the end of the Stanley Cup playoffs and a player has stood out as the obvious MVP of the series they might have a minus sign (-) ahead of their odds like this:
- Nikita Kucherov -175
This means that if you bet on Kucherov to win the Conn Smythe Trophy, you would have needed to bet $175 to profit $100.
