SB Nation's collection of hockey bloggers have teamed up to vote for the 2012 NHL Awards. Today, we reveal our selection for the Calder Trophy, awarded annually to the NHL's top rookie. Monday: Vezina Trophy. Tuesday: Norris Trophy. Wednesday: Lady Byng Trophy.

The Calder Memorial Trophy is awarded annually to the NHL's top rookie. Here at SB Nation, bloggers from our 33 hockey blogs have cast their own ballots for the award.

Ballots featured three fill-in-the-blank spaces for the Calder Trophy, and voters were asked to select a third-place finisher, a second-place finisher and a winner for the award. Players receiving third-place votes were awarded one point, second-place votes were awarded two points and first-place votes were awarded three points. 40 ballots were submitted in total.

And the winner is ....
