Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby has always been dominant when healthy, but health has been an issue in the past.
Finally healthy, he was dominant at the NHL Awards Show on Tuesday night in Las Vegas, winning both the Hart Trophy and Ted Lindsay Award as the NHL's MVP. The Professional Hockey Writers Association votes on the Hart and players vote on the Lindsay.
Crosby played all but two games and finished with 104 points, 17 more than runner-up Ryan Getzlaf of the Anaheim Ducks.
The Hart was the second of his career (also 2007) and the Lindsay was his third, including the 2012-13 season when his stellar regular season was cut short by a broken jaw. He dealt with concussions in the two seasons before that.
The Colorado Avalanche also were center stage, picking up three major awards: rookie Nathan MacKinnon (Calder), coach Patrick Roy (Jack Adams) and forward Ryan O'Reilly (Lady Byng).
MacKinnon, the No. 1 overall pick at last year's draft, won the rookie scoring title. He picked up all but five of the writers' first-place votes.
Roy, in his first year behind an NHL bench, took the Avalanche from last in the Western Conference in 2012-13 to the Central Division title this past season.
O'Reilly, whose award was for sportsmanship and gentlemanly play, had one penalty all season, for not dropping his broken stick right away. He led the Avalanche with 28 goals and played nearly 20 minutes a game.
The Boston Bruins won two major awards with Tuukka Rask getting the Vezina Trophy as outstanding goalie and center Patrice Bergeron picking up his second Selke Trophy (defensive forward) in three years.
Bergeron also won the NHL Foundation Award for charitable and community contributions and will be on the cover of EA Sports' NHL 15, as voted by fans.
-Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith won the Norris Trophy for the second time (also in 2010). He led defensemen with 55 assists and had a plus 22 rating.

-New York Rangers center Dominic Moore, who returned to the NHL after taking off a year for his wife's death from cancer, won the Masterton Trophy for perseverance.
"I've had a lot of good examples of perseverance over the years and none more than my wife, Katie, so this award is very meaningful and I'm very grateful," he said.
The NHL chose Dallas Stars center Rich Peverley, whose heart stopped during a game in March, to present the Masteron and he received a standing ovation from the audience. Peverley had surgery after the incident to correct his atrial fibrillation.
"The doctors set up some steps for me and I'm in the process of doing those steps and hopefully see if I can play or not," he said.
