Sidney Crosby finally wins NHL All-Star MVP
Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby finally got his hands on the NHL All-Star MVP award.
There is just about nothing Crosby has not done in his illustrious ice hockey career.
The 31-year-old has won three Stanley Cups, two Hart Trophies, two Conn Smythe awards, three Lester B. Pearson (now Ted Lindsay) awards, two Art Ross Trophies and two Maurice "Rocket" Richard Trophies.
But in his seven All-Star appearances, Crosby had never once won an MVP at the NHL All-Star game.
Well, he can cross that one off his list as he was given the honours after scoring four goals and adding four assists for an eight-point night in the Metropolitan Division's tournament victory on Saturday.
The Metro Division first took down the Atlantic 7-4 in the second semi-final of the night and then defeated the Central 10-5 in the decider.
