The National Hockey League (NHL) Awards honors the league's top performers and celebrating their achievements during the season. The prestigious awards ceremony recognizes the outstanding talents and efforts of players, coaches, and front office personnel through the presentation of various trophies and accolades. Essential aspects of the Observance include the presentation of awards such as the Hart Memorial Trophy, given to the league's most valuable player, the Norris Trophy for the best defenseman, and the Vezina Trophy for the top goaltender, among others.

The NHL Awards Observance has a rich history, dating back to its inception in 1924 with the presentation of the Hart Trophy to Frank Nighbor of the Ottawa Senators. Over the years, American players have been well-represented in the awards, with notable recipients including Patrick Kane, the first American-born player to win the Hart Trophy in 2016, and Brian Leetch, who was awarded the Norris Trophy twice in his illustrious career. These outstanding achievements by American players have contributed significantly to the growth of hockey in the United States and fostered a sense of pride among fans and aspiring young athletes.

The NHL Awards Observance is typically held in late June, following the conclusion of the Stanley Cup playoffs. The event often takes place in Las Vegas, Nevada and is attended by players, team personnel, and fans alike. The ceremony is broadcast on various media platforms, allowing fans from across the United States to watch and celebrate the achievements of their favorite players and teams.
