Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby has captured his second career Ted Lindsay award, given annually to the league’s most outstanding player, as voted on by the NHLPA.
“I would like to thank the NHL Players’ Association for recognizing me for this award,” Crosby said, via an NHLPA release. “It means a lot to be recognized by the guys that you compete against each and every night.”
No. 87 finished fourth in the NHL in scoring this season, with 56 points, even though he missed the final 12 games of the regular season with a broken jaw. He finished second in assists, with 41, and had the fourth-best plus/minus rating, at +26.
