It was a big night for a pair of Nova Scotians at the 2014 NHL Awards.

Sidney Crosby and Nathan MacKinnon will have plenty of hardware to take home to Cole Harbour this summer after enjoying a successful evening at the awards event in Las Vegas last night.

Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby picked up the first award of the night. The league’s top scorer took home the Ted Lindsay Award as the player’s choice for the NHL’s most outstanding player.

Crosby also picked up his second Hart Trophy as the league’s most valuable player Tuesday night. Having led the league in scoring with 36 goals and 68 assists (104 points in 80 games), he was also officially awarded the Art Ross Trophy.

For his part, MacKinnon captured the Calder Trophy as the NHL’s top rookie. The Colorado Avalanche forward was the consensus choice for the award, having receiving 130 of the 137 first-place votes. The 2013 NHL Entry Draft first overall pick doesn’t turn 19 until Sept. 1, beating Carolina’s Jeff Skinner in 2011 as the youngest player to claim the trophy.

Hockey Nova Scotia would like to congratulate these two fine Nova Scotians on their impressive night. We are very proud of you.
