None of the San Jose Sharks took home any of the major awards on Tuesday night in Las Vegas, but several received votes for their accomplishments during the 2013-14 season.

- Joe Pavelski, the NHL’s third-leading goal-scorer with 41, finished in seventh place for the Hart Trophy as the league’s most valuable player. Pavelski was named as a second team NHL All-Star at left wing behind Dallas’ Jamie Benn.

- Pavelski also finished in eighth place for the Selke Trophy as the league’s best defensive forward.

- Marc-Edourard Vlasic finished in 12th place for the Norris Trophy as the NHL’s best defenseman for his strong season as the Sharks’ best blueliner.

- The only finalist for a major award was Patrick Marleau, who was up for the Lady Byng Trophy as the NHL’s most gentlemanly player. Marleau finished in third place.
