Brian Gionta, Zdeno CharaIt’s time to vote.

The members of the Professional Hockey Writers Association (PHWA) had until Wednesday night to submit their ballots for the 2014 NHL awards.

The PHWA votes on the Hart Trophy (MVP), Frank J. Selke Trophy (best defensive forward), Calder Trophy (best rookie), James Norris Trophy (best all-around defenseman) and the Lady Byng Trophy (most gentlemanly).

The Jack Adams Award (best head coach) is voted on by the NHL Broadcasters Association, and the Vezina Trophy (best goaltender) is selected by NHL general managers.

Here’s a roundup of some of the PHWA voters’ picks for this season’s awards. More will be added when/if they are made public.
