1952 - 53 Hart Memorial Trophy Winner



Selected by the Professional Hockey Writers' Association, the NHL's Regular Season MVP (Most Valuable Player) is awarded the Hart Memorial Trophy. The voting is conducted at the end of the regular season by members of the Professional Hockey Writers Association, and each individual voter ranks their top five candidates on a 10-7-5-3-1 points system. Originally known as the Hart Trophy, it was first awarded at the conclusion of the 1923–24 NHL season. The Hart Memorial Trophy is named in honour of Canadian Dr. David Hart, who donated the original trophy to the NHL. The original "Hart Trophy" was retired in Hockey Hall of Fame in 1960, and the NHL began presenting a new trophy, which was named the "Hart Memorial Trophy" in its place.

1952 - 53 Calder Memorial Trophy Winner



The Calder Memorial Trophy is an annual award given to the player selected as the most proficient in his first year of competition in the National Hockey League. The trophy is named in honor of Frank Calder, the former President of the National Hockey League from its inception in 1917 to his death in 1943. Although Rookie of the Year honors were handed out beginning in 1932–33, the Calder Trophy was first presented at the conclusion of the 1936–37 NHL season. After Calder's death in 1942 the trophy was re-named the Calder Memorial Trophy. The voting is conducted by members of the Professional Hockey Writers' Association at the conclusion of each regular season to determine the winner. To be eligible for the award, a player cannot have played any more than 25 games previously in any single season, nor have played in more than six games in each of two separate preceding seasons in any major professional league.

1952 - 53 Vezina Trophy Winner



The Vezina Trophy is awarded annually to the National Hockey League's goaltender who is judged to be the best at this position. The Vezina Trophy was named in honor of Georges Vézina, an exceptional goaltender with the Montreal Canadiens. At the end of each season, the 30 General Managers of the teams in the National Hockey League vote to determine the goaltender who was the most valuable to his team during the regular season. Before 1981, it was awarded to the goaltender(s) of the team allowing the fewest number of goals during the regular season; now, the William M. Jennings Trophy is awarded under that definition. Full List of Previous Winners

Vezina Trophy - Terry Sawchuk - Detroit Red Wings

1952 - 53 Lady Byng Memorial Trophy Winner

The voting is conducted at the end of the season by the members of the Professional Hockey Writers' Association. The trophy is named in honour of Marie Evelyn Moreton (Lady Byng), wife of Viscount Byng of Vimy, a Vimy Ridge war hero who was Governor General of Canada from 1921 to 1926.
