For the second consecutive season, Sidney Crosby has been voted tops by his peers.
The Pittsburgh Penguins captain won his second straight Lindsay Award on Tuesday night, besting Anaheim’s Ryan Getzlaf and Philly’s Claude Giroux for the trophy presented annually to the league’s Most Outstanding Player, as voted by members of the NHLPA.
This year’s trophy came on the strength of leading the league in points (104), assists (68), points per game (1.30), even-strength points (66) while leading all forwards in average ice time per game (21:58).
With his third win overall, Crosby now trails only Mario Lemieux (four) and Wayne Gretzky (five) for career Most Outstanding Player awards.
