This is the second straight season that Moulson has been named a finalist for the trophy. The announcement of the winner will take place during the 2013 Stanley Cup Finals.

Moulson, 29, scored 44 points (15 goals, 29 assists) in 47 games this season, while recording only four penalty minutes. The fourth-year Islander tied for 21st in the league in points, while posting fewer penalty minutes than every other player who ranked amongst the NHL’s top-30 scorers.

A native of North York, ON, Moulson led the Islanders in assists, while finishing second in the club in points (44) and third in goals (15). He made his Stanley Cup Playoffs debut this season, recording three points (two goals, one assist) in six games.
