KELOWNA, B.C. (CP) - There aren't any trophies left for Rimouski Oceanic centre Sidney Crosby to win in major junior hockey this season after running away with the most of the Canadian Hockey League's big individual awards.

The 16-year-old phenom from Cole Harbour, N.S., was named to the CHL's first all-star team and rookie team on Friday as chosen by NHL Central Scouting.

Crosby became the first 16-year-old to win the league's player-of-the-year award earlier this week and was the first to win that honour, top scorer and top rookie in the same season.

The five-foot-10, 175-pound forward scored a hat trick in his first regular season game with the Oceanic en route to winning the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League's scoring title and the CHL scoring title with with 54 goals and 81 assists in 59 regular-season games. Crosby had seven goals and nine assists in nine playoff games.

He was the QMJHL's player of the week for the first two weeks of the season and went on to win that six times. He was the QMJHL's player of the month three times and the CHL's player of the week three times.


 

Crosby became the youngest player to score a goal for Canada at the world junior hockey championship in Helsinki where as he helped the Canadian team tto a silver medal in January. He is already considered the top prospect for the 2005 NHL draft.

Crosby was joined on the CHL's first all-star team by forward Jeremy Williams, a 52-goal scorer for the Swift Current Broncos and Ottawa 67's forward Corey Locke, who won his second straight scoring title in the OHL.

Red Deer Rebels goaltender Cam Ward, the CHL's goaltender of the year, was also named to the first all-star team as well as teammate Dion Phaneuf on defence. James Wisniewsi of the Plymouth Whalers, the CHL's top defenceman, joined Phaneuf on defence.

The second all-star team included Corey Perry of the London Knights, Kyle Brodziak of the Moose Jaw Warriors and Jean-Michel Daoust at forward, London's Dennis Wideman and Doug O'Brien of the Gatineau Olympiques on defence and Martin Houle of the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles in goal.

Forwards Gilbert Brule of the Vancouver Giants and Bryan Little of the Barrie Colts, defencemen Raymond Macias of the Kamloops Blazers and Boris Valanik of the Kitchener Rangers, and Mississauga IceDogs goaltender David Shantz joined Crosby on the all-rookie team.
