Nobody did it better in the past NHL season than the Pittsburgh Penguins' Evgeni Malkin.
The high-scoring center was voted the NHL's most-valuable player Wednesday night at the league's awards show in Las Vegas. Malkin garnered the Hart Trophy for the honor as well as the Ted Lindsay Award in the MVP voting by NHL players. He beat out Tampa Bay Lightning sniper Steven Stamkos and New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist in the MVP voting by his peers. Malkin led the league in scoring with 109 points - 12 better than Stamkos - to capture the Art Ross Trophy. Malkin has been a nominee for both awards in the past but won for the first time Wednesday night.
