Jamie Benn, Braden Holtby and Patrick Kane have been named the NHL’s finalists for the 2015-16 Ted Lindsay Award for Most Outstanding Player.

Dallas Stars forward Benn played all 82 games, finishing second in the league in points, third in goals and leading the Stars to a first-place finish in the Western Conference. He is a finalist for the second straight season.

Washington Capitals goaltender Holtby led his team to the Presidents’ Trophy for most regular-season points, winning 48 games in net and finishing fifth in goals against average and eighth in save percentage. He is also a finalist for the Vezina Trophy.

Kane led the league in points and finished second in goals and third in assists, playing all 82 games. His totals were all career highs as he led Chicago to its eighth straight playoff berth. He would be the first U.S. born player to  win the award.

Canadiens goaltender Carey Price won the award last season. Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby won it back-to-back the two years prior.

The winner will be announced June 22 during the NHL’s award ceremony.
