Alex Ovechkin wins third straight Lindsay Award
(Formerly known as the Lester B. Pearson Award, given to the NHLPA's choice for most outstanding player.)
From an NHL news release:
Ted Lindsay was on hand to present the players' award as part of the 2010 NHL Awards, held at the Palms Hotel in Las Vegas. Ted Lindsay Award finalists, Henrik Sedin of the Vancouver Canucks and Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins, were also in attendance.
"I'd like to congratulate Alex Ovechkin on receiving this award after another great year. Receiving this nod of respect from your peers carries a lot of meaning, and I know Alex will cherish this honour," said Lindsay, following the presentation of the first Ted Lindsay Award.
Ovechkin is the first player since Wayne Gretzky to receive the honor for three consecutive years.
