It would appear Zach Werenski doesn’t foresee himself taking home rookie of the year honors.

The Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman – who is nominated for the Calder Trophy along with Winnipeg Jets forward Patrik Laine and Toronto Maple Leafs forward Auston Matthews – was asked if he had spoken with his good friend Matthews since the nomination.

Werenski admitted to having a rather peculiar conversation.

“Yeah, I asked if he wanted help writing his acceptance speech,” Werenski said, according to Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch.

Werenski clearly feels Matthews is the favorite to win the Calder, and considering he led all rookies with 40 goals and 69 points during the regular season, it’s not a huge stretch.
