(UNDATED) – Seven years after Sidney Crosby won his first Hart Memorial Trophy, the Pittsburgh Penguins' captain has been recognized as the NHL's best once again. Crosby won the NHL's most valuable player award for the second time Tuesday night at the league's postseason awards ceremony in Las Vegas. After his first full season without major injuries since 2010, the Penguins' 26-year-old center cleaned up at the NHL's awards show to cap a fruitful year that included a second gold medal as Canada's captain at the Sochi Olympics. Crosby also collected the Art Ross Trophy as the league scoring champion and the Ted Lindsay Award as the players' choice for the NHL's most outstanding player. Boston goalie Tuukka Rask won the Vezina Trophy, and Bruins teammate Patrice Bergeron won his second Frank J. Selke Trophy as the NHL's best defensive forward. Chicago's Duncan Keith won his second James Norris Memorial Trophy as the league's top defenseman. Colorado coach Patrick Roy won the Jack Adams Award, while Avalanche forward Nathan MacKinnon became the youngest player to win the Calder Memorial Trophy as the NHL's top rookie. Alex Ovechkin accepted his fourth Maurice Richard Trophy as the NHL's top goal scorer, while Jonathan Quick and the Kings won their first William M. Jennings Trophy for the NHL's fewest goals allowed. Dominic Moore of the New York Rangers won the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy, an award for perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey. Colorado's Ryan O'Reilly won the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy for his sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct after scoring a career-best 64 points while committing just one minor penalty all season.
