Florida's Jonathan Huberdeau could become the franchise's first winner of the Calder Memorial Trophy for the league's top rookie on Saturday night.

The NHL will announce winners for a number of awards -- including the Calder, Hart (MVP), Norris (top defenseman) and Vezina (top goalie) -- prior to Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals.

Winners for other awards, including top coach, were scheduled to be announced on Friday.

Saturday's awards will be broadcast on NBC Sports Network at 7 p.m.

Huberdeau, the third overall pick in the 2011 draft, tied for the rookie lead with 31 points off 14 goals. The other finalists are Montreal's Brandon Gallagher and Chicago's Brandon Saad.
