Yorio is Yahoo! for Crosby

Karia Yorio of the Sporting News and Yahoo! Sports have come out with their season-end awards, and Crosby wins big.

Is this another meaningless award? Hardly! These awards were voted on by the NHL players.

Here's the scoop on Crosby.

Fans weren't the only ones impressed with Crosby's sophomore season. The Art Ross Trophy winner as the league's leading scorer received 110 of the 210 votes from his fellow players; Lightning center Vincent Lecavalier was a distant second with 24 votes.

Crosby led his team into the playoffs and finished the season with 120 points on 36 goals and 84 assists. His presence and play also helped the Penguins secure an arena deal to stay in Pittsburgh. Not bad for a kid who won't turn 20 until August.

Well, it sounds like Crosby has the Pearson wrapped up, wouldn't you say?

Linemate Evgeni Malkin also got the Rookie of the Year, to no surprise.
