Pittsburgh Penguins’ captain Sidney Crosby has yet another award to add to his collection of hardware.

Beating out fellow nominees Henrik Lundqvist, Alex Ovechkin, Martin St. Louis and John Tavares, Crosby reportedly took home the 2013 ESPY Award for Best NHL Player – according to the Pens’ website.

A season where Crosby broke his jaw and was out for the final month of the regular-season, number-87 still finished tied for third in scoring with 56 points (15G, 41A).

Although he didn’t win, Crosby was nominated for the Hart Trophy (NHL MVP), and he jumpstarted the Pens top-line to be the very best in the NHL.

Taking home the Ted Lindsey Award (NHL’s Most Outstanding Player), it was Crosby’s second career honor for this accolade (the other in 2006-07).

Crosby was also named an NHL First-Team All-Star for the second time in his career.
