THN Names Sidney Crosby MVP

Sidney Crosby can add another honour to his packed trophy case as The Hockey News named him the NHL's Most Valuable Player, which will be featured in their April 24th issue.

Story Linkage:

­The Hockey News has named Pittsburgh Penguins superstar sophomore Sidney Crosby its 2006-07 NHL Player of the Year and Most Valuable Player.

The 19-year-old sensation, who this season became the youngest player ever to capture the Art Ross Trophy as the league¹s scoring champion, was the consensus pick for both honors by the publication¹s editorial panel.

Others who merited consideration as MVP were Roberto Luongo of the Vancouver Canucks, Vincent Lecavalier of the Tampa Bay Lightning, Joe Sakic of the Colorado Avalanche and Martin Brodeur of the New Jersey Devils. Lecavalier, Dany Heatley of the Ottawa Senators, Joe Thornton of the San Jose Sharks and Nicklas Lidstrom of the Detroit Red Wings were in the running for best player.

Obviously, this is just a warmup to the real thing.

In case you were wondering, here are some of the other THN awards:
Best First-Year Player: Malkin, Pittsburgh
Best Defenseman: Nicklas Lidstrom, Detroit
Toughest Player: Brendan Witt, New York Islanders
Breakout Player: Kevin Bieksa, Vancouver.
