Currently, Tampa Bay Lightning having leading odds at 4.00 of once again claiming the Presidents’ Trophy. Consequently, a win this season would make it 2 wins in a row for the 1xBET Sportsbook frontrunners. Fortunately, with a long list of promising signings for the 2019-20 NHL season, they can defend their Presidents’ Trophy. One of their biggest singings for the upcoming season is former St. Louis Blues player Patrick Maroon.

Patrick Maroon’s extensive NHL experience could help Tampa Bay Lightning be a powerhouse during the regular season. Additionally, having won the 2018-19 Stanley Cup, Maroon might just also help his new team power through to the Stanley Cup.

Fortunately, with odds at 6.50, they can claim their 1st Presidents’ Trophy win. Similarily to Tampa Bay Lightning, the Toronto Maple Leafs have also been busy making new additions to their current squad.

However, according to the online sportsbook news in Canada, there’s still uncertainty over their captain for the 2019-20 season. Currently, there’s a strong list of candidates. However, according to our 2019 NHL Presidents’ Trophy winner predictions, it might come down to John Tavares or Auston Matthews. Choosing the right candidate for the leadership role will be crucial for the Toronto Maple Leaf’s 2019-20 NHL season.

Vegas Golden Knights to pull through despite several player departures

The Vegas Golden Knights (8.00) also stand a considerable chance of winning the Presidents’ Cup Trophy on the online sportsbooks in Canada. However, they’ve lost several players such as Pierre-Edouard Bellemare, Ryan Carpenter, Daniel Carr, Max Legace, Colin Miller, and Erik Haula. Nevertheless, our 2019 NHL Presidents’ Trophy winner predictions say the club can still win with their remaining players and new additions.

However, according to our 2019 NHL Presidents’ Trophy winner predictions, they can use this as motivation to power through the 2019-20 NHL season. Canadian left wing Brad Marchand will be one of the players to keep an eye out for this season. He finished last season with the following impressive stats of 100 points, 36 goals, 64 assists from 79 games.
