Crosby named MacLean's Newsmaker of the Year

Tuesday, 11.30.2010 / 6:56 PM / News


Sidney Crosby has another honor to add to his already-impressive list: Maclean's magazine has chosen the Pittsburgh Penguins' captain as its newsmaker of the year.

Maclean's says the 23-year-old native of Cole Harbour, N.S., native was chosen for his gold medal-winning goal against the United States at the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver. The Canadian magazine said Crosby's overtime goal was on a "higher plane" than the wars, natural disasters and political upheavals of 2010.

Maclean's says the goal united Canadians and dwarfed Crosby's other achievements, which include a Stanley Cup and a host of personal awards.

Crosby leads all players in voting for the NHL All-Star Game, scheduled for Jan. 30 in Raleigh, N.C.

Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
