The NHL announced Thursday that Pastrnak, along with Alex Ovechkin, has been awarded the Rocket Richard Trophy for leading the league in goals with 48 in 70 games this campaign.

There was some uncertainty surrounding whether Pastrnak would be awarded the Rocket Richard since it took him two more games (70) to reach the 48-goal mark than Alex Ovechkin, but the NHL ultimately decided that goals per games played would not factor into the equation. The 24-year-old winger is the first player to win the award in Bruins franchise history. He should be considered a consensus top-five pick heading into next year's drafts after setting new career highs in goals, assists (47), power-play points (38) and shots on goal (279) this season.
