TORONTO (AP) You can call Alex Ovechkin the NHL MVP. What the Washington Capitals' young star really wants is to be known as Stanley Cup champion.
Ovechkin, 22, capped off a special season Thursday night by capturing the NHL's two most prestigious individual awards. He won the Hart Trophy as league MVP and the Lester B. Pearson Award as the players' choice for the most outstanding player.
"I think I'm the happiest 22-year-old guy on the planet. I want to win everything," he said, "so next year maybe the Stanley Cup."
