Joining Crosby and Chara are two second-time selections to the First Team, right wing Corey Perry of the Anaheim Ducks and defenseman Duncan Keith of the Chicago Blackhawks. The squad also features two first-time recipients, left wing Jamie Benn of the Dallas Stars and goaltender Tuukka Rask of the Bruins.

Among those named to the Second Team is Washington Capitals right wing Alex Ovechkin, voted to the team for the third time. Also a six-time honoree on the First Team, Ovechkin's nine career postseason All-Star Team selections are the most among active players, one more than Jaromir Jagr (7 First Team, 1 Second Team).

Bruins' Rask wins his first Vezina Trophy

Tuesday, 06.24.2014 / 8:48 PM / 2014 NHL Awards

2013-14 Vezina Trophy Voting -- Top 10

Player Pts. (1st-2nd-3rd)
Rask, BOS 103 (16-6-5)
Varlamov, COL 90 (9-13-6)
Bishop, TBL 32 (1-6-9)
Price, MTL 26 (2-3-7)
Quick, LAK 9 (1-1-1)
Lundqvist, NYR 5 (1-0-0)
Mason, PHI 3 (0-1-0)
Bobrovsky, CBJ 1 (0-0-1)
Lehtonen, DAL 1 (0-0-1)

Tuukka Rask of the Boston Bruins has captured his first Vezina Trophy, awarded to the "goalkeeper adjudged to be the best at his position," as selected by NHL General Managers. Prior to 1981-82, the Vezina was awarded to the goaltender(s) whose team allowed the fewest goals during the regular season, the current criterion for the William Jennings Trophy.

Rask was the top choice for 16 of the 30 General Managers and received 103 voting points to edge second-place Semyon Varlamov of the Colorado Avalanche (9 first-place votes, 90 points). Rask's win marks the third time in the past six seasons that a Bruins netminder has taken Vezina honors, following first-place finishes by Tim Thomas in 2009 and 2011.

Rask posted a 36-15-6 record, highlighted by a career-best 10-game point streak from Mar. 20-30 (9-0-1), as the Bruins captured their first Presidents’ Trophy since 1990 and led the Eastern Conference in team defense (2.08 GA/game). He allowed two goals or fewer in 37 of 58 starts, set single-season highs in wins and appearances, and was the only goaltender to rank among the NHL’s top five in each of the major statistical categories: first in shutouts (seven), second in save percentage (.930), fourth in goals-against average (2.04) and fifth in wins.

Murray paved the way for the finest season in Ducks history, leading the team to its second straight Pacific Division title; the top record in the Western Conference for the first time in club history; and franchise records in wins (54), points (116), points percentage (.707), home wins (29) and road wins (25). He set the Ducks up for success by re-signing Matt Beleskey, Saku Koivu, Ben Lovejoy and Kyle Palmieri as well as enticing Teemu Selanne to return for one final season. Murray also traded for Mathieu Perreault during the preseason; added depth players in Mark Fistric, Tim Jackman, Stephane Robidas and Jakob Silfverberg; and oversaw the development of young goaltenders Frederik Andersen and John Gibson.

Cancer patient has unforgettable time at NHL Awards

Tuesday, 06.24.2014 / 8:22 PM / 2014 NHL Awards

Shawn Roarke - Director, Editorial

LAS VEGAS -- Will Lacey slipped on the sparkly ring easily, its size so big he might easily slip over two of his 9-year-old fingers instead of the one it rested upon Tuesday afternoon.

He looked at the sparkly ring in amazement, then at the man who had just given it to him, Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban, with equal amazement. His gaze soon returned to the ring, a freshly-minted piece of jewelry Subban received from Hockey Canada to commemorate Canada's gold-medal triumph at the 2014 Sochi Olympics. Then his gaze returned a beaming Subban.

For Lacey, on hand for his first NHL Awards at the Wynn Hotel, it was the highlight of an unforgettable night. He couldn't stop talking about the ring.

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.

— Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice on Mathieu Perreault, who scored two goals in win against Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday
