Peter Forsberg, a native of Ornskoldsvik, became the first Swedish-born player to capture the Hart Memorial Trophy as the NHL's most valuable player in 2002-03. Also the winner of the Art Ross Trophy and a 1st Team All-Star, Forsberg recorded totals of 29 goals, 77 assists and 106 points to lead the NHL. Not only was his point total tops, but he also finished first in assists, even-strength points and even-strength assists, while tying teammate Milan Hejduk for the lead with a +52 rating. The second member of the Avalanche to win the award in three years, along with Joe Sakic in 2001, Forsberg played on a line with Hejduk and Alex Tanguay that would average four points per game during the second half of the season, helping Colorado win its ninth consecutive division title. Vancouver's Markus Naslund was the Hart runner-up.
