The Calder Trophy, which is awarded to the leagues top rookie, is an award that no Oilers player has ever won. If the odds makers are right that'll change this season. From Bovada:

Who Will Win the Calder Memorial Trophy as the NHL’s Rookie of the Year?
Connor McDavid (EDM) - 4/7
Jack Eichel (BUF) - 4/1
Sam Bennett (CAL) - 7/1
Sam Reinhart (BUF) - 9/1
Max Domi (ARI) - 12/1
Artemi Panarin (CHI) - 14/1
Nikolaj Ehlers (WPG) - 16/1
Dylan Strome (ARI) - 18/1
Mikko Rantanen (COL) - 20/1
Jake Virtanen (VAN) - 22/1

The love for McDavid doesn't stop with the Calder though. You'll also find his name on the list of favourites to win the Hart Memorial Trophy (18/1), the Art Ross Trophy (20/1), and the Maurice Richard Trophy (18/1). No other Oilers players were even listed. Not even notable Norris Trophy candidate Justin Schultz.
