Ovechkin begins his trophy haul

Washington Capitals left wing Alex Ovechkin has joined an elite group of players who, in the same season, have won the Art Ross Trophy for the National Hockey League scoring championship as well as the Maurice Richard Trophy for being the League’s top goal scorer...

Ovechkin becomes only the sixth player in the past 37 years to lead the League in goals and points in the same season, joining a group that includes Phil Esposito (1970-71 through 1973-74), Guy Lafleur (1977-78), Wayne Gretzky (1981-82 through 1984-85, plus 1986-87), Mario Lemieux (1987-88, 1988-89) and Iginla (2001-02).

I don't think there's any question he'll also win the Hart Trophy and the Lester Pearson in June, and I might even argue he should be flipped a few votes for the Lady Byng.

Quite a year.
