Sedin2.jpgIt was an incredibly exciting finish down the stretch for a couple of
teams that didn’t really have much to play for, as Henrik Sedin, Alex
Ovechkin and even Sidney Crosby (who made a late charge) battled down to
the last game of the season for the NHL scoring lead.

In the end,
it was Henrik Sedin who took a commanding lead after a dominating
performance on Saturday with four assists. Although Ovechkin had the
chance to to catch up earlier today, Sedin was able to hang on for the
title.

Gordon McIntyre of The Province
has some thoughts from Sedin
, after his tremendous season:

“It is a great honour to win this
trophy. The names of past winners are many of the players we looked up
to growing up in Sweden.”

“Many of my teammates have had career seasons offensively and this
trophy is a reflection of our hard work,” Sedin said. “I’m grateful for
the opportunity my teammates and the coaching staff gave me to try and
win this award. It reflects teamwork and commitment.”

This
was certainly a team accomplishment for Sedin, who depended on his
teammates to finish off the great plays he was creating. Yet at the same
time, there’s no doubt that Sedin was the primary reason for the
Canucks’ offensive success and his teammates have him to thank for their
great seasons.

Congratulations to Henrik. Is the Hart Trophy
next?
