NHL announces three nominees for GM of the Year award

The NHL announced its three nominees for the league’s GM of the Year award and… quite frankly, there are some MAJOR snubs.

The three men nominated for 2018-19:

Don Waddell - Carolina Hurricanes
Doug Armstrong - St. Louis Blues
Don Sweeney - Boston Bruins



All deserving candidates but… how does Columbus Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen not get a nod? The guy had the biggest stones of any GM in the league this season and was rewarded with not only a playoff spot, but a first round sweep of the President’s Trophy winning Tampa Bay Lightning.

Or how about Calgary Flames GM Brad Treliving? He transformed the Flames from a pretender to a contender with some HUGE offseason trades. Ditto for Doug Wilson who cemented the Sharks as a Cup favourite by chasing down Erik Karlsson from the Ottawa Senators.
