Alex Ovechkin becomes the first back-to-back winner of the Maurice Richard Trophy since Pavel Bure in 2000 and 2001 and only the second in the trophy's short history. After a slow start to the year, Ovechkin went on a tear in the second-half of the season, finishing the year with a league-high 56 goals and 110 points, second best in the league. Spending more time on the ice per game than any other forward (23:00) allowed him to also finish 2nd in power play goals (19), while tying for 3rd in both game winning goals (10) and overtime goals (2). As usual, the 1st Team All-Star's shot total was well beyond any other player, finishing 156 shots ahead of Eric Staal and bettering his previous year's total (446) by 82 shots for a grand total of 528; still remaining all-time behind only Phil Esposito's 550 shot total set in 1971.
