Rangers announce annual team awards
Prust Wins Extra Effort Award
Past Rangers Award Winners

The New York Rangers have announced the 2010-11 Team Awards, including the Rangers’ MVP; the Players’ Player Award and the John Halligan Good Guy Award.

The Rangers’ MVP, voted on by the New York Rangers media, was awarded to Henrik Lundqvist.  This is the fifth consecutive year that Lundqvist has won the award, which marks the most consecutive years an individual has been named Rangers’ MVP.

Lundqvist currently leads the NHL in shutouts (11), and is tied for sixth in the league in wins (35), time on ice (3,886:47), save percentage (.923) and goals against average (2.27).  Lundqvist is the only goalie in NHL history to post 30-or-more wins in each of his first six seasons, and the first Rangers goaltender in team history to post six straight 30-win seasons. 

The Players’ Player Award, voted on by the Ranger players, was given to Ryan Callahan.  The award recognizes the Rangers player who best exemplifies what it means to be a teammate.

Callahan was also named the winner of the John Halligan Good Guy Award, selected by the NY chapter of the PHWA, which recognizes players’ cooperation with the media.  The award is named in honor of John Halligan, a longtime Rangers and NHL Public Relations executive, who passed away in 2010.

Callahan is serving in his second year as Alternate Captain of the New York Rangers.  He ranks fifth among all NHL forwards in blocked shots (77) and tenth in hits (224).  Callahan leads the Rangers in power play goals (10) and game winning goals (five), ranks second in goals (24), points (49) and power play points (15) and third in assists (25).
