LAS VEGAS, Nev. - Corey Perry of the Anaheim Ducks has won the Hart Trophy as the NHL's most valuable player.

Perry beat out Vancouver's Daniel Sedin and Tampa Bay's Martin St. Louis for the honour.

Perry was a big reason Anaheim made the playoffs before bowing out in the first round to Nashville.

The Ducks' star forward finished the regular season with 50 goals and 48 assists to push Anaheim into the post-season.
