Crosby named MacLean's Newsmaker of the Year

NHL.com @NHL
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.
