Pittsburgh Penguins forward Sidney Crosby, Anaheim Ducks forward Ryan Getzlaf and Philadelphia Flyers forward Claude Giroux were named the three finalists for the 2013-14 Ted Lindsay Award, the NHL announced Monday.
The Lindsay Award is presented to the Most Outstanding Player in the NHL, and is voted on by members of the National Hockey League Players Association.
The same three players were named finalists for the Hart Memorial Trophy, given to the league's Most Valuable Player.
Crosby, who won the Lindsay Award last season, scored 36 goals, led the league with 68 assists and was the only NHL player to record 100 points this season.
