Mario Lemieux took home the Hart Trophy as the league's MVP and won the Pearson award as the NHL's outstanding player as voted by NHL players. Lemieux and Jaromir Jagr were also named to the league's all-star team.
Jaromir Jagr with his 149 points (62 G, 87 A) breaks two NHL scoring records for right wingers. Jaromir owns the assist record at 87 and the total points record at 149.
Craig Patrick yesterday (3-20-96) picked up two right wingers (?) and only one defenseman. He gave up Markus Naslund for tough RW Alek Stojanov from the Canucks, picked up D JJ Daigneault (who's been in the minors since the end of February...) from the St. Louis Blues for a 1996 sixth-round draft choice, and got RW Kevin Miller from the San Jose Sharks for a 1996 fifth-round draft choice and the ever popular "future considerations."
By netting 2 goals in 2-23-96's game against Hartford, Jaromir Jagr becomes the first Czech-born player to score 50 goals in a season.
