DIRK SHADD | Times

At 37 years old, Marty St. Louis is the oldest player to ever win the Art Ross Trophy.

Lightning right wing Marty St. Louis on Thursday was named a finalist for the Ted Lindsay Awad, given annually by the NHL Players Association to the league's "most outstanding player."

Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby and Washington's Alex Ovechkin also were named finalists for the award voted on by Players Association members. St. Louis previously won the award in 2004 when it was known as the Pearson Award.

St. Louis has a good case as he won the league points championship, and at 37 years old is the oldest player to ever win the Art Ross Trophy.

Here is a synopsis of each player's accomplishments this season:

Sidney Crosby appeared in 36 games for the Pittsburgh Penguins in the 2012-13 regular season, and helped lead the Penguins to first place in the Eastern Conference. He ranked tied for third in the league in points (56), second in assists (41), fourth in plus-minus (plus-26), and first in points per game (1.56). This marks the second year in a row that a Penguins player has been nominated, after Evgeni Malkin received the 2011-12 Ted Lindsay Award. Crosby is vying for his second "Most Outstanding Player" award. He received the players' award in 2006-07 and was also a finalist in 2009-10.

Alex Ovechkin appeared in all 48 games for the Washington Capitals in the 2012-13 regular season, and helped lead the Capitals to a Southeast Division title. He led the league in goals (32) to win his third "Rocket" Richard Trophy, tied for third in the league in points (56), tied for fifth in points per game (1.17) and ranked first in power play goals (16). Ovechkin is vying for his fourth "Most Outstanding Player" award. He previously received the players' award in three consecutive seasons (2007-08, 2008-09, 2009-10), and he was also a finalist in 2005-06.

Martin St. Louis appeared in all 48 games for the Tampa Bay Lightning in the 2012-13 season. He led the league in points (60) to win his second career Art Ross Trophy (2003-04), ranked first in assists (43), second in points per game (1.25), and fifth in power play assists. This marks the third consecutive year that a Lightning player has been nominated, after St. Louis' linemate Steven Stamkos was a finalist in each of the previous two seasons. St. Louis is vying for his second "Most Outstanding Player" award. He received the players' award in 2003-04.
