The NHL's youngest player has been crowned as its best rookie.

Jeff Skinner of the Carolina Hurricanes claimed the Calder Trophy on Wednesday, beating out San Jose's Logan Couture and Michael Grabner of the New York Islanders in voting by the Professional Hockey Writers' Association.

Skinner led all rookies in scoring with 63 points during a season where he was selected to the all-star team.

He only celebrated his 19th birthday last month.
