His 50 goals were the most by a Ducks player since Teemu Selanne scored 52 during the 1997-98 season.

"Congratulations to Corey Perry on this tremendous accomplishment," Ducks General Manager Bob Murray said in a press release. "This is a historic day for the Perry family and the entire Anaheim Ducks organization. Corey deserves this terrific honor following a season that defines what the Hart Trophy is all about."

Daniel Sedin of the Vancouver Canucks finished a distant second in the voting.
