As Edmonton fans, we are all constantly reminded that no Edmonton Oilers rookie has ever won the Calder Trophy. We also know that Wayne Gretzky was royally screwed out of the award because John Ziegler wanted to ensure that everyone knew just how big of a jackass he actually was. Though Taylor Hall had a wonderful season, he won't win the Calder this year, either, thanks to his late-season tussle. Edmonton's hope falls to Adam Larsson or Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (though if Teemu Hartikainen gets a couple of decent linemates and some power play time, he could pop in a bunch of goals next year) to bring home the first-ever Calder Trophy.
All of that brings us to today's trivia question and it's on the honor system (I trust you not to look it up):
Since Original Six expansion, which NHL franchise has employed the most Calder Trophy winners?
EDIT: What franchise has had the most members win the Calder Trophy while a part of the team?
I didn't get this one and in fact, I wasn't close. Good luck.
