The Calder Memorial Trophy is awarded annually to the National Hockey League's top rookie. At the end of the NHL season, members of the Professional Hockey Writers' Association vote on all the major NHL awards. The trophy was first awarded in 1937 by then-league president Frank Calder. It is presented to the winner during the NHL Awards Show, which is held every June.

During the 1989 season, the "Sergei Makarov" rule was added, stating that players over the age of 26 would be ineligible for the Calder. Makarov was 31 at the time he began his "rookie" season, but Soviet officials had prohibited players from the USSR from playing in the NHL until 1988.
