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.
Pastrnak is currently tied with Alex Ovechkin for the league lead in goals with 48 in 70 games.
Although Pastrnak is currently tied with Alexander the Great, Ovechkin has reached the 48-goal mark in two fewer games, which would give the eight-time Richard winner a slight edge down the stretch should the NHL resume its season. Any way you slice it, Pastrnak has had the best campaign of his young career in 2019-20, having set new personal highs in goals (48), assists (47) and shots on goal (279) while averaging 18:58 of ice time per contest. Pastrnak should only continue to improve as he enters his age-24 season in 2020-21.
