Corey Perry won the Hart trophy!!!!
Perry notched 50 goals, 48 assists and a +9 rating in 82 games last season. He also set career highs in goals, points and shorthanded goals. He led the NHL in scoring AND tied for 1st with 11-game winning goals. Obviously, Perry deserves this trophy and there a few who can dispute it. He also had the most third-period tallies with 21 and 28 road goals. He was also tied 5th overall for shorthanded and powerplay goals.
GM Murray had nothing but praise for Perry:
“This is a historic day for the Perry family and the entire Anaheim Ducks organization. Corey deserves this terrific honor following a season that defines what the Hart Trophy is all about.”
Perry also won the Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy for leading the NHL in goals.
Perry gave an interview about the Hart and Rocket Richard trophy.
Congratulations to Corey Perry, we are all stoked to have you on our team!
