Crosby Named MVP; Ovechkin On First Team
Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby received the Hart Trophy last night, becoming the league's youngest MVP since Wayne Gretzky. The teenager also took home the Pearson Trophy, the MVP as selected by his peers in the NHLPA.
Here's a complete list of the winners.
Alex Ovechkin, meantime, earned all NHL first team honors for the second straight season. He's the first player to accomplish that feat since Detroit Red Wings goaltender Terry Sawchuk in 1950-51 and 1951-52.
Ovechkin joined Martin Brodeur, Nicklas Lidstrom, Scott Niedermayer, Dany Heatley and Crosby on the first team.
