Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby captured his second career Art Ross trophy on Sunday after leading the NHL in scoring this season.

Washington Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin, meanwhile, claimed his fourth career Maurice (Rocket) Richard trophy as the league's leading goal-scorer.

Crosby, who won his first Art Ross trophy in 2006-07, reached the 100-point milestone for the fifth time in his career, finishing with 36 goals and a league-leading 68 assists for 104 points.

Ovechkin scored 51 goals to win his second consecutive Richard trophy. He became the 11th player in NHL history to record five 50-goal seasons and just the fifth to do so in his first nine campaigns.

Los Angeles Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick also took home his first career William M. Jennings trophy for allowing the fewest goals through at least 25 games.

Quick compiled a 27-17-4 record with a 2.07 goals-against average, a .915 save percentage and six shutouts in 49 appearances for a Kings team that allowed a league-low 174 goals.
