[url=http://www.angelsteamshop.com/Angels-Huston-Street-Kids-Jersey/]Huston Street Jersey[/url] . Crosby also collected the Art Ross Trophy as the league scoring champion and the Ted Lindsay Award as the players choice for the NHLs most outstanding player. Boston goalie Tuukka Rask won the Vezina Trophy, and Bruins teammate Patrice Bergeron won his second Selke Trophy as the NHLs best defensive forward. Chicagos Duncan Keith won his second Norris Trophy as the leagues top defenceman. Colorado coach Patrick Roy won the Adams Award, while Avalanche forward Nathan MacKinnon became the youngest player to win the Calder Trophy as the NHLs top rookie. Crosby cleaned up at the NHLs awards show after a fruitful season that included a gold medal as Canadas captain at the Sochi Olympics. He led the league with 104 points, including 68 assists in his fifth career 100-point season. Crosby scored in 60 of his 80 games, never going more than two games without a point for the Metropolitan Division champion Penguins. Crosby hadnt won the Hart Trophy since 2007, but the 26-year-old centre handily beat out Anaheim captain Ryan Getzlaf and Philadelphia captain Claude Giroux. Crosby received 128 of the 137 first-place votes from a panel of hockey writers, while Getzlaf finished second in the balloting. In his acceptance speech, Crosby thanked his teammates and family. "I appreciate all the sacrifices youve made to allow me to play the game I love every day," Crosby said. The winners of the leagues statistical awards also were recognized at the ceremony in the Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas. Washingtons Alex Ovechkin accepted his fourth Richard Trophy as the NHLs top goal-scorer, while Jonathan Quick and the Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings won their first Jennings Trophy for the NHLs fewest goals allowed. Dominic Moore of the New York Rangers won the Masterton Trophy, an award for perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey. Colorados Ryan OReilly won the Lady Byng Trophy for his sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct after scoring a career-best 64 points while committing just one minor penalty all year. Anaheim general manager Bob Murray was voted the NHLs general manager of the year after building the Ducks into the two-time Pacific Division champions and the Western Conferences top regular-season team. Roy was chosen the NHLs top coach in his first season behind the Colorado bench. The Hall of Fame goalie led the Avalanche from 29th place in the overall league standings to third this season, going 52-22-8 and winning the Central Division. Bergeron beat out Los Angeles Anze Kopitar and Chicago captain Jonathan Toews for the Selke, which he also won in 2012. The smooth two-way forward, who also won the NHL Foundation Player Award for his charitable work, won a league-high 1,015 faceoffs while finishing second in the NHL with a career-best plus-38 rating. Rask went 36-15-6 and finished in the top five in every major statistical category to win his first Vezina for Boston, which claimed the Presidents Trophy with the NHLs best regular-season record. The NHLs general managers chose Rask in a narrow vote over Colorados Semyon Varlamov, who finished fourth in the Hart Trophy balloting. Keith comfortably beat out Boston captain Zdeno Chara and Nashvilles Shea Weber for the Norris, which he also won in 2010. Keith, who led all defencemen with 55 assists while leading the Blackhawks in ice time for the ninth straight season, is the only active NHL defenceman with multiple Norris wins. MacKinnon was a runaway winner of the Calder, receiving 130 of the 137 first-place votes. The No. 1 overall pick doesnt turn 19 until Sept. 1, beating Carolinas Jeff Skinner in 2011 as the youngest player to claim the trophy. Moore returned to the NHL this season after sitting out a year to be with his wife, Katie, who died from a rare form of liver cancer in January 2013. The 33-year-old forward thanked his family and teammates. "Ive had a lot of good examples of perseverance over the years, and none more so than my wife, Katie," Moore said. "So this award is very meaningful, and Im very grateful." Edmontons Andrew Ference won the King Clancy Award for humanitarian contributions to hockey, while Los Angeles captain Dustin Brown won the Mark Messier NHL Leadership Award for his charitable work.

Because I have decided to no longer play football.Riquelme left Boca Juniors in June of 2014 and played a few matches with second-division Argentinos Juniors. That club was promoted back to the first division at the end of last year, and Riquelme said part of his retirement hinged on not wanting to face his beloved Boca. [url=http://www.angelsteamshop.com/Customized/]Custom Los Angeles Angels Jerseys[/url]. I cant play against Boca, he said. I have a special feeling. In this country, I cant wear another shirt.In his career with Boca, the Xeneize — as the team is known — won 11 titles including three Copa Libertadores titles, the top club trophy in Latin America.Riquelme moved to Barcelona in 2002, but had limited success there. He was eventually loaned to smaller Spanish club Villarreal, where he lifted the team in 2006 to the final four of the Champions League.Riquelme seemed to move effortlessly on the field, often coming up with a clever pass. He was also lethal on set pieces from all over the pitch.I tried to give my all to the clubs I played for, to the national team, he said. Im happy when I look back for all I have accomplished. Now that football is over, Ill have to learn some new things.
