The 2022 NHL Awards season has come and gone, and now we can take a gander at how many Calgary Flames won awards or were on various ballots.
Let’s dive in!

Preamble

The Professional Hockey Writers Association had 195 ballots submitted for the trophies, 192 for the all-star teams and 196 for the all-rookie team. (The NHL Broadcasters Association voted for the Jack Adams and the league’s general managers voted for the Vezina Trophy. Neither group released individual ballot information. There was no voting breakdown released by the NHLPA for the Ted Lindsay Award.)
Six members of Calgary-area media submitted ballots as part of the PHWA: Eric Duhatschek (The Athletic), Eric Francis (Sportsnet), Wes Gilbertson (Postmedia), Darren Haynes (Canadian Press), Hailey Salvian (The Athletic) and myself.

Hart Memorial Trophy

Johnny Gaudreau finished fourth overall and was named on 168 on 195 ballots. He received three first-place votes [from Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press, Craig Button of TSN, and Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet].
Matthew Tkachuk received a single fifth-place vote [from Marc du Foy of Le Journal de Montreal] and finished tied for 14th.

James Norris Memorial Trophy

Chris Tanev received a single fifth-place vote [from Thomas Drance of The Athletic] and finished tied for 15th.

Frank J. Selke Trophy

Elias Lindholm finished second overall and was named on 157 of 195 ballots. He received 21 first-place votes.
Mikael Backlund finished 13th overall and was named on 11 ballots.
Johnny Gaudreau received a fourth-place vote [from Eric Engels of Sportsnet] and finished tied for 27th
Matthew Tkachuk received a fourth-place vote [from Greg Wyshynski of ESPN] and finished tied for 27th

Lady Byng Memorial Trophy

Johnny Gaudreau finished ninth overall and was named on 28 ballots. He received four first-place votes [from Ian Mendes of The Athletic, Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun, Wayne Gretzky of TNT and Jeff Marek of Sportsnet].
Elias Lindholm received two third-place votes [from Tim Rosenthal of Bruins Daily and Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette] and a fifth-place vote [from Stephen Conroy of the Boston Herald] and finished 36th.
Oliver Kylington received one fourth-place vote [from Mark Spector of Sportsnet] and a fifth-place vote [from Steve Simmons of Postmedia] and finished tied for 55th.
Calle Jarnkrok received one fifth-place vote [from Lance Lysowski of the Buffalo News] and finished tied for 66th.

Bill Masterton Memorial Award

Chris Tanev received one third-place vote [from Daniel Wagner of Vancouver is Awesome]. We couldn’t find a voting tally, but Tanev didn’t finish particularly high in the voting.

Vezina Trophy

Jacob Markstrom finished second overall and was named on 25 of 32 ballots.

Jack Adams Award

Darryl Sutter finished first overall and was named on 93 of 121 ballots.

All-Star Teams

Elias Lindholm received one third-place vote at centre [from Chris Johnston of NorthStar Bets] and finished 10th.
Johnny Gaudreau finished first at left wing and was named on 189 of 192 ballots.
Matthew Tkachuk finished second at right wing and was named on 133 of 192 ballots at that position. He also received one third-place vote at left wing [from Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette] and finished tied for ninth. (If he had gotten that third-place vote at right wing, he wouldn’t have finished any higher.)
Jacob Markstrom finished second at goaltender and was named on 137 of 192 ballots. He received one first-place vote [from Jonathan Bernier of Le Journal de Montreal].
Chris Tanev received one third-place vote at defense [from Thomas Drance of The Athletic] and finished tied for 16th
No Flames received votes for the Calder Memorial Trophy or the All-Rookie Team, which makes sense given their general lack of rookies in 2021-22.
