Ovechkin wins Hart Memorial Trophy
Islanders center John Tavares was a finalist for league\u2019s MVP award at the 2013 NHL Awards Show

The National Hockey League announced today that Washington Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin is the recipient of the Hart Memorial Trophy, awarded annually to the player judged most valuable to his team. The award was presented Saturday at the 2013 NHL Awards Show.

Islanders center John Tavares was one of three finalists for the award, along with Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Tavares, 22, led the Islanders in points (47) for the fourth consecutive season, and ranked third in the NHL with 28 goals, to go along with 19 assists. He posted 13 multi-point games, including three, three-point efforts and a four-point game, and led the league with 19 goals at even strength. He recorded his fourth-career hat trick on February 16 against the New Jersey Devils, and netted his 100th career goal on Mar. 9 vs. Washington. Tavares was named the NHL’s First Star of the Week for the period ending February 17, after registering seven points (five goals, two assists) in three games.

Tavares appeared in all 48 games in 2013 for the Islanders, extending his consecutive-games played streak to 207. In his first career postseason appearance, Tavares led the Islanders with five points (three goals, two assists) in six games, including a game-winning marker in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series against Pittsburgh.

In 291 career NHL games, all with the Islanders, Tavares has scored 249 points (112 goals, 137 assists). Tavares was selected No. 1 overall by the Islanders at the 2009 NHL Draft, and leads all fellow 2009 draftees in terms of career games played, goals, assists and points.
