  • Patrick Kane Wins 2015-16 NHL MVP

    NHL awards for 2015-16 season handed out Wednesday in Las Vegas

    Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane won the Hart Memorial Trophy as the league's most valuable player Wednesday night at the league's annual postseason awards show in Las Vegas, becoming the second U.S.-born player to win the award.

    The NHL's scoring champion, Kane, 27, is the first Chicago player to take home the Hart since Stan Mikita in 1968.

    Earlier in the night, Kane won the Ted Lindsay Award as the NHL's outstanding player selected by his fellow players. He also received the Art Ross Trophy for winning the NHL scoring title.

    Kane was the runaway winner of the Hart, as expected, getting 121 of the 150 first-place votes. Sidney Crosby finished second with 11 first-place votes, and Dallas' Jamie Benn was third. Vezina Trophy-winning goalie Braden Holtby of Washington was fourth.

    Kane, a Buffalo native, was the first U.S.-born player to lead the league in scoring with 106 points, leading Benn by a whopping 17 points.
