Las Vegas, NV (SportsNetwork.com) - For the second straight season, Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby was tabbed as the Ted Lindsay Award winner, presented annually to the league's top performer as voted on by the NHL Players' Association.

Crosby led the league with 104 points this season, registering at least one point in 60 of the 80 games he played. He scored 36 goals and led the league with 68 assists to capture his second Art Ross Trophy as the NHL's top scorer. The 26-year-old Nova Scotia native also won the Lindsay Award in 2007 and was also a finalist in 2010.

He edged out Anaheim Ducks forward Ryan Getzlaf and Philadelphia Flyers forward Claude Giroux.

The Lindsay Award was renamed for the Hall of Fame forward who helped establish the NHLPA. It was previously known as the Lester B. Pearson Award from 1970-71 through 2008-09.
