January 20th, 2016 by Lyle Richardson Leave a reply »
Past the midway point of this NHL season, the race for the Calder Memorial Trophy remains a close one. Several youngsters, including Chicago Blackhawks left wing Artemi Panarin, Arizona Coyotes left wing Max Domi and Detroit Red Wings center Dylan Larkin, are among the rookie scoring leaders.

Offense, however, isn't the only measure for determining Rookie of the Year honors. Overall performance must be considered as well as the requirements of the position played. A defenseman such as Colton Parayko of the St. Louis Blues or a goaltender such as Connor Hellebuyck are performing well in their respective roles. 

Earlier this season, Bleacher Report's Steve Macfarlane ranked the top Calder Trophy candidates. The following slideshow is an updated ranking, taking into account statistical information, overall performance and other factors.
