The Calder Memorial Trophy may go to the best ‘rookie’ player, but that does not mean #1 overall picks have dominated this award. In fact, since this annual honour was introduced only seven #1 overall picks have won it.

Goaltenders have not fared well when it comes to this award either. Only 16 goaltenders have won the NHL Calder Memorial Trophy, and no goalie has been named the league’s best rookie player since the 2008/09 season.
