Alexander Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals has won the 2013 Hart Trophy. Ovechkin was the primary reason why the Capitals won the Southeast Division. Ovechkin, who also won the Maurice Richard Trophy, led the NHL with 32 goals.
Other award winners included Paul MacLean of the Ottawa Senators as the Jack Adams Trophy winner for coach of the year, Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Blackhawks as the Selke Trophy winner as best defensive forward, P.K. Subban of the Montreal Canadiens as the Norris Trophy winner for best defenceman, Sergei Bobrovsky of the Columbus Blue Jackets as the Vezina Trophy winner for best goaltender, Martin St. Louis of the Tampa Bay Lightning as the best gentlemanly player and Jonathan Huberdeau of the Florida Panthers as the best rookie.
The 2013 NHL Awards were given secondary status this season because of the lockout situation. A ceremony would have had to take place in July, after the draft and after free agency.
