Crosby, Ovechkin and St. Louis named finalists for Ted Lindsay Award

TORONTO, Cananda - Pittsburgh Penguins centre Sidney Crosby, Washington Capitals right-winger Alex Ovechkin and Tampa Bay Lightning right-winger Martin St. Louis have been nominated as finalists for the Ted Lindsay Award.

The award is presented annually to the most outstanding player in the NHL as voted by fellow members of the NHL Players' Association.

Crosby, Ovechkin and St. Louis have all previously won the award, which is voted on by the players themselves. This year's winner will be announced during the Stanley Cup final.

Crosby, from Cole Harbour, N.S., had 56 points (15 goals, 41 assists) in 36 games this past season. He was tied for third in the league in points, second in assists and first in points per game (1.56).

St. Louis, from Laval, Que., led the league with 43 assists and 60 points. He was second in points per game (1.25).

The award honours Ted Lindsay, an all-star forward known for his skill, tenacity, leadership, and for his role in establishing the original NHLPA.

Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
