Four players have already captured NHL trophies since the end of the season. The Washington Capitals very own captain, Alex Ovechkin, was one of those, claiming the Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy for being the League’s goal-scoring leader. This is Ovechkin’s third “Rocket” Trophy. Ovechkin scored 32 goals to lead the goal-scoring race.
Tampa Bay Lightning forward Martin St. Louis captured the Art Ross Trophy for being the NHL’s scoring champion with the most points in the League, the second of his career. Two goalies won the William M Jennings Trophy, Chicago Blackhawks goaltenders Corey Crawford and Ray Emery, for being the goaltenders of the club allowing the fewest goals during the regular season.
For now, the rest of the trophies to be handed out will have to wait until the NHL Awards – which of course comes after the best trophy of them all, the Stanley Cup.
