Toronto, ON (SportsNetwork.com) - Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby, Anaheim's Ryan Getzlaf and Philadelphia's Claude Giroux have been named finalists for the Ted Lindsay Award, presented annually to the NHL's top performer by the NHL Players' Association.

Crosby, who won this award last season, led the league with 104 points this season, registering at least one point in 60 of the 80 games he played. He scored 36 goals and led the league with 68 assists to capture his second Art Ross Trophy as the NHL's top scorer. The 26-year-old Nova Scotia native also won the Lindsay Award in 2007 and was also a finalist in 2010.

Getzlaf scored a career-high 31 goals and finished second in the NHL with 87 points to help Anaheim post the top record in the Western Conference. He also had a plus-28 rating, and his 14-game point streak was the longest in the NHL since the 2011-12 season. The 28-year-old Saskatchewan native is a finalist for the first time and would become the first Anaheim player to win the award.

Giroux is also a finalist for the first time after finishing third in the scoring race with 86 points. He matched a career best with 28 goals and had a great finish to the season with 79 points in his last 67 games to help the Flyers earn a playoff spot after a disastrous 3-9-0 start. A Flyer hasn't won the NHLPA's honor since Eric Lindros in 1995.

The Lindsay Award, voted on exclusively by the players, was renamed for the Hall of Fame forward who helped establish the NHL Players' Association. It was previously known as the Lester B. Pearson Award from 1970-71 through 2008-09.

This year's winner will be announced June 24 during the NHL's awards ceremony in Las Vegas.
