Ovechkin wins 3rd Hart Trophy, given to NHL's MVP

CHICAGO - Sergei Bobrovsky of the Columbus Blue Jackets has won the Vezina Trophy, given to the NHL's top goaltender.

Bobrovsky beat out Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers and Antti Niemi of the San Jose Sharks for his first Vezina on Saturday. The Russian (21-11-6, 2.00 GAA, .932 save percentage and four shutouts) anchored Columbus' late-season surge that nearly earned the club a playoff berth.

Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby took the Ted Lindsay Award, given to the league's most outstanding player as voted by fellow members of the NHL Players' Association. Crosby finished fourth in the NHL with 56 points despite missing 12 games because of injuries.

Florida's Jonathan Huberdeau won the Calder Trophy, given to the NHL's top rookie.

Voting for the awards was done before the playoffs began.

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
