Let the Stanley Cup champion high continue.
Across town, Ducks' Bob Murray was named General Manager of the Year after finishing the season atop of the Western Conference before falling to the Kings in the second round of the playoffs. Kings GM Dean Lombardi finished third.
"Dean gave me a pat on the back and said, 'Congratulations.' There's a mutual respect there," Murray told reporters in a conference call. "As I said, I'd trade this one for that one if he wants to make a deal."
In Hart Trophy voting, Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf was edged by Sidney Crosby, who captured 128 of 137 first-place votes.
"You play for the big one that the Kings have here tonight, but this is definitely nice," Crosby told the NHL Network in reference to the Kings' Stanley Cup title.
