As defined by the NHL, this trophy is awarded to "the player judged to be
the most valuable to his team."

History of the trophy: The original Hart trophy was donated to the NHL
by Dr. David A. Hart, father of Cecil Hart, former manager-coach of the
Montreal Canadiens, in 1923. It was retired in 1960 to the Hockey Hall of
Fame, and a new trophy was presented.
