Barry Trotz takes home 2016 Jack Adams Award

The third time was the charm for Barry Trotz as he was named the winner of the 2016 Jack Adams Award Wednesday night at the NHL Awards in Las Vegas.

Here's why the Washington Capitals' head coach deserved the win, via the NHL:

Trotz guided the Capitals (56-18-8, 120 points) to the Presidents’ Trophy as the NHL’s top regular-season club, setting franchise records for total wins and road wins (27). Their 120 points and 29 home wins were just one shy of club records. The Capitals were dominant at both ends of the ice, placing second in team offense (3.02 G/G) and team defense (2.33 GA/G). They also ranked among the League leaders in special teams (5th on the power play, 21.9%, and 2nd in penalty killing, 85.2%).

Here’s how the NHL Broadcasters’ Association voted:

Pts. (1st-2nd-3rd)
1. Barry Trotz, WSH 344 (58-16-6)
2. Gerard Gallant, FLA 203 (20-28-19)
3. Lindy Ruff, DAL 75 (1-16-22)
4. Bruce Boudreau, ANA 58 (3-10-13)
5. Mike Sullivan, PIT 35 (2-5-10)
6. Ken Hitchcock, STL 35 (1-7-9)
7. Peter DeBoer, SJS 16 (1-3-2)
8. Darryl Sutter, LAK 10 (1-1-2)
9. Dave Hakstol, PHI 10 (0-2-4)
10. John Hynes, NJD 6 (1-0-1)
11. Joel Quenneville, CHI 5 (1-0-0)
12. Peter Laviolette, NSH 4 (0-1-1) 

Trotz wins the award in his second season with the Capitals after being nominated twice previously while coaching the Nashville Predators.
