Crosby not worried Penguins are without coach

Tuesday, 06.24.2014 / 7:48 PM / 2014 NHL Awards

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

LAS VEGAS -- The Pittsburgh Penguins are in limbo as new general manager Jim Rutherford continues to search for the team's next coach in the days leading up to the 2014 NHL Draft and the opening of free agency July 1.

It can be an uneasy time for anyone associated with the Penguins, but one member of the organization who isn't concerned, at least not yet, is captain Sidney Crosby.

Crosby has been monitoring all the changes going on in Pittsburgh from afar and is quick to point out that it's still only June, that training camp doesn't open until September, and certainly by then the Penguins will have a new coaching staff and a new plan of attack.

"I don't think you have to get too dramatic about it," Crosby said Tuesday from the red carpet at the 2014 NHL Awards. "It's still early. There's lots of time left."

Penguins' Crosby wins Art Ross Trophy

Tuesday, 06.24.2014 / 7:46 PM / 2014 NHL Awards

Center Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins has won his second career Art Ross Trophy, presented "to the player who leads the league in scoring points at the end of the regular season."

Crosby, who won his first Art Ross Trophy in 2006-07, finished with 36 goals, a League-leading 68 assists and 104 points -- besting Anaheim Ducks forward Ryan Getzlaf (31-56—87) and Philadelphia Flyers forward Claude Giroux (28-58—86). Crosby registered points in 60 of the 80 games he played in (75.0%), including 30 multi-point performances, and never went more than two consecutive games without registering a point. He posted four point streaks of five or more games, highlighted by an eight-game run to open the season (Oct. 3-19: 7-10—17) and a 10-game stretch Dec. 3-21 (7-11—18). Crosby also reached the 100-point milestone for the fifth time in his career; only Mario Lemieux (10 times) has had more such seasons in Penguins history. On Nov. 29, Crosby became the third player in team history to reach 700 points, doing so in his 497th game, the fastest among active players and sixth-fastest in NHL history. He also became the fourth player in Penguins history to earn multiple Art Ross Trophies, following Lemieux (6), Jaromir Jagr (5) and Evgeni Malkin (2). His 17-point gap over Getzlaf marks the greatest differential for the League’s scoring champion since 1998-99, when Jagr beat out Teemu Selanne by 20 points.

Kreider, NYR 20 (0-0-1-3-6)

Colorado Avalanche forward Nathan MacKinnon has won the Calder Memorial Trophy, awarded "to the player selected as the most proficient in his first year of competition in the National Hockey League."

MacKinnon was a near-unanimous choice, receiving 130 first-place votes from the 137 ballots cast. The 18-year-old (9/1/95) becomes the youngest Calder winner ever. Carolina forward Jeff Skinner (5/16/92) was three and a half months older when he captured the award in 2011.

MacKinnon topped all first-year players in points (63), goals (24-tied), assists (39), power-play goals (8), game-winning goals (5-tied) and shots (241). The first overall pick in the 2013 NHL Draft tallied at least one point in 13 consecutive games from Jan. 25 to March 6 (5-13—18), breaking Wayne Gretzky's NHL record for the longest single-season point streak by a player age 18 or younger (12 games).

The Cole Harbour, N.S., native is the second Avalanche player in the past three years to be voted the League's top rookie, following captain Gabriel Landeskog's Calder Trophy win in 2012.

Tuesday, 06.24.2014 / 7:34 PM / 2014 NHL Awards

New York Rangers forward Dominic Moore is the 2013-14 recipient of the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy, awarded annually to the NHL player who "best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to hockey." The award was presented by the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association (PHWA) to honor the late Bill Masterton, a player for the Minnesota North Stars who exhibited those qualities. Masterton died on Jan. 15, 1968, as a result of an on-ice injury.

Moore returned to the NHL this season after taking a leave of absence from the League in the spring of 2012 in order to care for his wife, Katie, after she had been diagnosed with a rare form of liver cancer. Katie passed away at the age of 32 in January of 2013. Moore thereafter established the Katie Moore Foundation (katiemoore.org), dedicated to helping patients and families with rare cancers through research, advocacy and community. He resumed his career as an integral part of a Rangers team that earned 96 points and a second-place finish in the Metropolitan Division.
