Bruins' Rask, Bergeron among NHL award winners

Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby won the Hart Memorial Trophy, awarded to the NHL’s regular season MVP by the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association, during the league’s awards ceremony Tuesday night in Las Vegas.

Crosby, who led the league with 36 goals and 104 points, is the second Penguins player to win the Hart multiple times, joining Mario Lemieux, who won it three times. Crosby, who was named on every ballot, was followed by Anaheim Ducks center Ryan Getzlaf.

Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask received the Vezina Trophy, which goes to the NHL’s top goaltender. Rask went 36-15-6 while helping Boston post the league’s best regular-season record. He topped the NHL with seven shutouts, and he came in second in save percentage (.930), fourth in goals-against average (2.04) and fifth in victories.

Rask received 16 of 30 first-place votes and 103 voting points from the league’s general managers in voting for the top goalie. Colorado’s Semyon Varlamov was second with nine first-place votes.

Rask’s teammate in Boston, forward Patrice Bergeron, received the Frank J. Selke Trophy, which goes to the top defensive forward in the NHL. Bergeron also won the NHL Foundation Player Award, given for charitable and community work.

Bergeron received 1,283 points in Selke voting, including 112 of the 137 first-place votes. Kings center Anze Kopitar finished a distant second with 840 points and 20 first-place votes.

Eighteen-year-old Colorado Avalanche center Nathan MacKinnon became the youngest winner of the Calder Trophy, given to the NHL’s top rookie.
