Sid “the Kid” Crosby
I am at best a lukewarm hockey fan (pun intended). But I have been very impressed with two-time MVP Sidney Crosby. Most impressive to me is how he dealt with his concussions that sidelined him for the better part of two seasons. With Sidney never knowing when or if he could return to professional hockey, he devoted some of his time to helping others, in effect forgetting about his own worries.
I was also impressed with how Sidney shared credit with his teammates, especially one time when he and teammate Evgeni Malkin both hit career milestones on the same play.
He plays some great hockey too.
