As per tradition, the Individual Trophy Award Ceremony took place on Thursday night in Las Vegas. After an exceptional season, Russian player Nikita Kucherov caught attention, but for the wrong reasons.

Since attendance is mandatory for the nominees, Kucherov's demeanor suggested he was just as disinterested as he had been at the previous All-Star Game. However, the camera captured a moment filled with nonchalance. It was embarrassing to see him so unprofessional at a prestigious event that recognizes excellence, professionalism, and talent.
«Nikita Kucherov absolutely wanted nothing to do with it.»

Watch the footage:
It's not necessarily surprising, but it's really unfortunate for the fans and for the NHL because it projects an awkward image.

Nikita Kucherov goes home empty-handed

Despite another highly productive season in 2023-2024, the Tampa Bay Lightning's star player only received one honor: the league's top scorer. With 144 points, he won the Art Ross Trophy, awarded to the NHL's top point scorer.
However, he was annoyed to see Nathan MacKinnon take home the two most coveted trophies of the evening. The Colorado Avalanche's star forward won both the Hart Trophy, awarded to the most valuable player of the season, and the Ted Lindsay Award, given to the best player as voted by his peers.
As for Nikita Kucherov, he went home, but not without leaving a mark online. A viral video in which he doesn't appear in the best light made waves in the following hours. It's safe to assume it won't keep him up at night.
At 31 years old, Nikita Kucherov was selected 58th overall in 2011. He has been among the NHL elite for several seasons. In 2023-2024, he recorded 144 points (including 100 assists) in 81 regular-season games.
Rather quiet in the playoff games, he added 7 assists in five playoff matches.
Details to follow.
