    Jason Robertson now has 20 points in his last 18 games, sports a higher PPG average than Kaprizov and is 2 points back in 4 less games.

    Safe to say Kaprizov isn’t a lock as many were quick to announce a month ago.

    I mean, given how things looked a month ago, that wasn't an uncommon sentiment. It's not like Stars fans knew Robertson would light it up (not that we're complaining).

    Yeah, wind the clocks back a month or two and most would readily admit the Calder was Kaprizov's to lose.

    Robertson has really been on a tear though, making it much more of a race than most of us expected.

    Yegor Sharangovich now 5th in rookie scoring. Has put together a really nice rookie year.

    It's a pretty damn good Calder year when a guy like Nils Hoglander probably isn't even in the top 5.

    Hmm, I think you have a point. Have never seen the guy play, but he looks pretty legit.

    The Calder race this year will benefit heavily from only being 56 games long, cutting out the last the third of a normal season when most rookies fade quite a bit from the fatigue of an 82 game season that they aren't prepared for yet.

    Still Kaprizov's to lose really, he has been solid and according to their fans has transformed the team to an extent and I don't doubt it. Kaprizov has got a 2 point cushion plus he has 12 games left where Robertson only has 11. Kaprizov will end up playing 5 more games than Robertson. But you've got to admire how the kid climbed from the press box to bottom line minutes to top line by mid season and is putting up with limited PP minutes. Pretty special even if he doesn't win the award he deserves some love.

    Robertson's on an incredible hot streak. Kirill hasn't been slumping either, almost putting up point per game during that same stretch. Still ~10 games to go...

    I don't think that is really the case, considering the compressed season (especially for Dallas).

    With 2 more Robo points tonight, we have a new points per game leader (rookies), with Kaprizov at 0.84 and Robertson at 0.88
    If the Stars make the playoffs, without Seguin, and with Robertson being at the forefront, as a rookie, it's going to a hard debate for the Calder. Not as cut and dry as most people thought it was going to be.

    Still over 10 games left for both teams, lots of runway before the finish line. Right now its Kaprizov vs Robertson, but all it takes is a few high scoring games from Ottawa and all of sudden Josh Norris could pop out of nowhere

    Any chance a goalie wins? There have been 7 standout rookie goalies.

    Shesterkin - .920 sv%, 2.43GAA, 2 SO in 28 games
    Sorokin - .922 sv% 2.02GAA, 3 SO in 18 games
    Vanecek - .908sv% 2.77GAA, 1 SO in 31 games
    Ndeljkovic - .932sv% 1.87GAA, 3 SO in 18 games
    Oettinger - .919sv% 2.15GAA, 1SO in 23 games
    Lankinen - .911sv%, 2.89GAA, 2SO in 33 games
    Kahkonen - .910sv% 2.66 GAA, 2SO in 20 games

    ------
    As for forwards its a 2 man race between Kaprisov and Robertson. As for dman Smith is the only one with a realistic shot.

    Nice to see Robertson chase Kaprizov down, was hoping for something as exciting as Hughes vs Makar last year. The case can be made for Robertson now, with maybe one of the goalies like Shesterkin a distant third due to not enough games.

    Lankinen was the only one who had a shot with how he was playing early in the season. Now that he's cooled off i don't think goalies have a shot. The ones with good enough numbers just haven't played enough games. Shersterkin maybe because he's the Rangers #1 could get nomininated but i doubt he can win.

    Think its Kaprizov's to lose still, with Robertson a close 2nd.

    Then a mix of guys in contention for 3rd.

    If the Stars actually make the playoffs Robertson likely ends up with around 50 or more points and if that happens Robertson is going to win the Calder imho. Stars need him to score to win games .

    He's not winning the Calder unless Kaprizov just falls off a cliff suddenly. He's had it won for months now

    Well Kaprizov shouldn't have anything locked . Not like anyone has voted yet and the season isn't over either..

    I agree with you that if he gets 50 points the Calder is his. But that would mean 15 points in 11 games, Stars already have played 45 or 56. Tall order, but should we be surprised if he pulls it off the way he's going right now?

    What if Kaprizov ends up scoring 55-60 points or more?

    While I don't expect a goalie to win the Calder, his stats are the best of the rookie tenders.
