Move over Alex Ovechkin, your peers have selected a new top Russian player in the NHL.

On Friday, Detroit Red Wings forward Pavel Datsyuk was named the recipient of the Kharlamov Trophy, narrowly defeating Ovechkin, who previously won the award five times.

The award, named after Russian great Valeri Kharlamov, is awarded annually to the player judged to be the best Russian player in the NHL as voted on by all the league's Russian players.

Datsyuk, who scored a goal in Game 1 of the Red Wings series against the Phoenix Coyotes, was limited to only 56 games this season because of injuries but he still managed to record 23 goals and 36 assists.
