CHICAGO (June 15, 2013) -- Center Jonathan Huberdeau of the Florida Panthers has won the Calder Memorial Trophy for 2012-13, awarded "to the player selected as the most proficient in his first year of competition in the National Hockey League."

Huberdeau edged Montreal Canadiens left wing Brendan Gallagher by fewer than 100 voting points (1,141 to 1,048) to become the first Panthers player to garner top rookie honors. Huberdeau and Gallagher each received 54 first-place votes among the 179 ballots cast, with Huberdeau picking up slightly more support further down the ballot. Points are allocated on a 10-7-5-3-1 basis for first through fifth place.

Selected third overall by the Panthers in the 2011 NHL Draft, Huberdeau played in all 48 games for Florida and ranked second both on the team and among NHL rookies with 31 points (14-17—31). Among first-year players, he finished third in goals, fourth in assists and third in shots on goal (112). His 16:55 average time on ice also led rookie forwards, while his nine power-play points (2-7—9) placed fourth among all freshmen skaters. Huberdeau set two franchise records, becoming the first Panther to score on two penalty shots in one season (Feb. 21 at Philadelphia and March

5 vs. Carolina) and recording the most points by a teenager in team history (four more than Radek Dvorak in 1995-96).

TORONTO (June 15, 2013) – The National Hockey League Players’ Association (NHLPA) today announced Sidney Crosby as the recipient of the 2012-13 Ted Lindsay Award, presented annually to the “Most Outstanding Player” in the NHL as voted by fellow members of the NHLPA.

Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals and Martin St. Louis of the Tampa Bay Lightning were also nominated by their fellow players as finalists for the 2012-13 Ted Lindsay Award.

“I would like to thank the NHL Players’ Association for recognizing me for this award,” said Sidney Crosby, the 2012-13 Ted Lindsay Award recipient. “It means a lot to be recognized by the guys that you compete against each and every night.”

“The players know who they're voting for. This is very well deserved for Sidney,” said Ted Lindsay, Hockey Hall of Fame player, and namesake to the award. "Sidney comes to play every night and he's a great team player. It's a wonderful honour for my name to be associated with his winning it. I would also like to congratulate Alex and Martin on their deserving nominations."

This is the second time that Crosby has received the players’ award (2006-07). He was also nominated by his peers as a finalist in 2009-10. 

As part of the 2013 NHL Awards television broadcast that aired prior to Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final in Chicago, the Ted Lindsay Award was presented along with the Calder Memorial Trophy, Hart Memorial Trophy, James Norris Trophy and Vezina Trophy.

The Ted Lindsay Award is the only award voted on by the players themselves, carrying on the tradition established by the Lester B. Pearson Award since 1970-71. The Award honours Ted Lindsay, an All-Star forward known for his skill, tenacity, leadership, and for his role in establishing the original Players' Association.

Crosby helped lead the Penguins to a first place finish in the Eastern Conference in the 2012-13 regular season. He ranked tied for third in the league in points (56), second in assists (41), fourth in plus-minus (+26), and first in points per game (1.56).

In the history of the Award, four different Penguins players have been voted the “Most Outstanding Player” for a combined nine times. Crosby’s teammate Evgeni Malkin received the Ted Lindsay Award last season, while former Penguins forward Mario Lemieux received the Award four times (1985-86, 1987-88, 1992-93, 1995-96), and forward Jaromir Jagr received the Award twice while playing for the Penguins (1998-99, 1999-00).

CHICAGO (June 15, 2013) -- Sergei Bobrovsky of the Columbus Blue Jackets has won the Vezina Trophy for 2012-13, 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 M. Jennings Trophy.

Bobrovsky received 17 first-place votes and was named on 26 of 30 ballots for 110 points. His point tally doubled that of the second-place finisher, Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers, who collected 55 points from votes on 19 ballots. Points are allocated on a 5-3-1 basis for first through third place.

Bobrovsky (21-11-6, 2.00 goals-against average, .932 save percentage, four shutouts) backstopped Columbus' late-season surge that kept the club in contention for a playoff berth until the final moments of the season.  The first-time Vezina finalist appeared in all but one of the Blue Jackets' franchise-record 12-game point streak (8-0-4) from Feb. 26 through Mar. 22 that spurred the club's move up the standings. He won eight of his last nine decisions from April 9-27, posting a 1.64 goals-against average and .945 save percentage in that span. Bobrovsky ranked second among NHL goaltenders in save percentage and sixth in goals-against average.

CHICAGO (June 15, 2013) -- P.K. Subban of the Montreal Canadiens has won the James Norris Memorial Trophy for 2012-13, awarded to the defenseman demonstrating "the greatest all-around ability in the position," as selected by the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association.

Subban captured the Norris in his first year as an NHL Trophy finalist by recording a narrow victory over Ryan Suter of the Minnesota Wild, 1,266 points to 1,230. It marks the third consecutive year the Norris has been won by a razor-thin margin: Detroit's Nicklas Lidstrom edged Nashville's Shea Weber 736-727 in 2011 and Ottawa's Erik Karlsson topped Weber 1,069-1,057 in 2012. Points are allocated on a 10-7-5-3-1 basis for first through fifth place. 

Subban topped NHL defensemen in scoring, recording 38 points (11 goals, 27 assists) in 42 games as the Canadiens won the Northeast Division crown and posted the League's fourth-best record. The 24-year-old Toronto native also led defensemen in power-play scoring with 26 points (seven goals, 19 assists), helping Montreal post the League's fifth-best success rate with the man advantage (20.7%). Subban ranked second on the Canadiens in points, plus-minus (+12) and average ice time per game (23:14).

CHICAGO (June 15, 2013) -- Right wing Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals has won the Hart Memorial Trophy for 2012-13, awarded "to the player adjudged to be the most valuable to his team" as selected by the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association.

Ovechkin edged Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby, 1,090 points to 1,058, for his third Hart Trophy win in the past six seasons (2007-08, 2008-09). The margin of victory -- just 32 points from a record-setting 179 ballots cast -- represents the closest Hart Trophy race since Montreal's Jose Theodore and Calgary's Jarome Iginla finished in a virtual tie in 2002 (434 points each, with Theodore winning the award via the first tie-breaker, greater number of first-place votes). Points are allocated on a 10-7-5-3-1 basis for first through fifth place.

Ovechkin tallied 32 goals in 48 games, including 23 in his final 23 contests, to become the first three-time winner of the Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy as the NHL’s goal-scoring leader. He also finished third in the League in points (56), first in power-play goals (16), first in power-play points (27) and first in shots on goal (220), leading the Capitals to an 11-1-1 record in April and their fifth Southeast Division title in the last six years. Ovechkin recorded points in nine straight games March 17-April 2 (10-5—15), including a five-game goal streak March 17-24, and tallied his 30th goal of the year April 20, becoming the ninth player in League history to score 30 or more goals in each of his first eight seasons.

It’s such a shame that Ovi got the Hart only because of his strong finish. He was so inconsistent over the season.

When will they announce the first and second all star teams?  Normally that is done when the awards get announced.
