Crosby wins Hart Trophy

  • The NHL awards ceremony turned into the Crosby show Thursday night in Toronto. Crosby at age 19 became the youngest player to be awarded the M.V.P. trophy. Earlier in the evening Crosby won the Lester B. Pearson Award as the most valuable player as voted on by the players association. Crosby was also named a first-team All-Star and before game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals Crosby was awarded the Art Ross trophy as the leagues leading scorer netting 120 pts becoming the youngest player to receive each of these honors.
  • Evgeni Malkin brought home the Calder trophy edging teammate Jordin Staal 3rd in voting and Colorado Avalanche forward Paul Stastny who finished second in voting. Malkin lived up to the hype netting 85 points despite missing most of training and the first four games of the regular season. With a full season under his belt, Malkin will look to make the jump to the exclusive 100 pt plateau. Staal and Malkin were also named to the all-rookie team
  • Michel Therrien finished 3rd in voting for the Jack Adams award as the leagues top coach. He finished behind Buffalo’s Lindy Ruff and winner Alain Vigneault of Vancouver. It was nice to see Vigneault come away with the award as he was most deserving.
