A.O. to Collect Art Ross, Richard on Wednesday
Ovechkin and a few other players will claim their hardware at a luncheon in Pittsburgh.
From the NHL:
Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals will receive the Art Ross Trophy and the Maurice "Rocket" Richard Trophy for leading the League in points and goals with 112 points and 65 goals, respectively. The William M. Jennings Trophy, awarded the goaltenders who play a minimum of 25 games for the team that allows the fewest goals during the regular season, will be presented to Chris Osgood and Dominik Hasek of the Detroit Red Wings, who combined to allow just 184 goals in the 82 games.
Toronto Maple Leafs captain Mats Sundin will receive the Mark Messier Leadership Award, presented to the player who exemplifies leadership qualities on and off the ice, and the 10th annual NHL Foundation Award, recognizing the NHL player who applies the core values of hockey (commitment, perseverance and teamwork) will be presented to Vincent Lecavalier of the Tampa Bay Lightning and Trevor Linden of the Vancouver Canucks.
The other major regular-season awards will be presented at the NHL Awards Show on Thursday, June 12 at the Elgin Theater in Toronto.
As for me, I just got back from a week in Indianapolis and I'm looking forward to watching Game 2 -- in HiDef, and with sound -- in the comfort of my own home. I watched Game 1 with some other sports scribes at a place called Neon Johnny's. (Versus is hard to find out there.) Anyway, the half price pizza was great, but there wasn't any sound, the picture on the big screen was a bit fuzzy and I lost my favorite sunglasses.
