newjerseydevils.com – Captain Jamie Langenbrunner, Zach Parise and Scott Clemmensen were the big winners Tuesday, when the Devils voted on the 2009 player awards at Prudential Center.

Langenbrunner was named the Devils' Players' Player, while Parise took home the Most Valuable Devil award. Scott Clemmensen was chosen as the Unsung Hero.

Langenbrunner accepted his award from Devils' Assistant Coach Tommy Albelin. The veteran right wing has enjoyed his most productive NHL season with 25 goals, 38 assists and 63 points – all new career highs.

Langenbrunner is tied with Patrik Elias for second on the team with six game-winners, and shares the club lead for shorthanded goals (3) with Brian Gionta.

Past winners of the Players' Player have included Scott Stevens, Randy McKay and Jay Pandolfo. 

Parise accepted his award from Devils' Assistant Coach John MacLean. Parise, the team's leading scorer, this season became the seventh player in Devils history to record a season of 40-or-more goals.

His 41 tallies are second-best in the NHL, and he has established new career highs across the board, including 47 assists, 88 points and 13 power-play goals. The left wing leads all Devils with seven game-winners.

Past winners of the MVD have included Martin Brodeur, who had earned 10 of the previous 12. He split the award with Patrik Elias in 2000-01.

Clemmensen, who was reassigned to Lowell (AHL) on Feb. 25, was credited by Devils' Goaltending Coach Jacques Caron for having had a major role in the club's success during Brodeur's rehab from injury. Caron accepted the Unsung Hero award on Clemmensen's behalf.

Clemmensen posted a record of 25-13-1, including two shutouts, in 39 starts this season. He began the year with the Devils' AHL affiliate after re-signing as a free agent during the offseason.

Clemmensen was recalled two days after Brodeur suffered a left elbow injury on Nov. 1, and went on to win 11 of his first 15 starts. He recorded a personal seven-game winning streak from Jan. 13-30.

The winners of the annual awards are determined by a players' secret ballot vote.
