All I do is win, win, win no matter what!

Move over DJ Khaled, Sidney Crosby might as well take that song for his own. He adds the World Cup of Hockey MVP, and of course captaining Team Canada to yet another international achievement. Add that to a 2016 that already included the Conn Smythe trophy and captaining the Pittsburgh Penguins to the Stanley Cup, and it's just another banner year in a banner career.

Crosby got an assist tonight after a zone-entry on the power play and a pass back to Brent Burns . Burns put a shot on net that Patrice Bergeron tipped in to finally get Canada on the board late in the game.

Crosby led all WCH players with 10 points (3g+7a) in the 6 games he played. Per Dan Rosen on twitter, Canada scored 24 goals in the tournament, so that means Crosby factored into 41.7% of that all-star team's goals.

Those guys are pretty good.

The World Cup of Hockey is pretty dopey looking, but hey a trophy is trophy.

And, you want to talk about an exclusive club:

Crosby's illustrious list of achievements now includes:

  • 2 time Stanley Cup champion
  • Conn Smythe
  • 2 time Olympic gold medal
  • 3 time Lester B Pearson / Lindsay award
  • 2 time Hart Trophy
  • 2 time Art Ross Trophy
  • 1 World Championship
  • 1 World Cup of Hockey
  • 1 World Cup of Hockey MVP
  • 4 time 1st team NHL All-star
  • Maurice Richard trophy
  • World Junior Championship
  • "Triple Gold Club" (Stanley Cup, Olympic Gold, World Championship)

And he's won the Cup, Conn Smythe, 1st team NHL, World Cup MVP, World Cup in the past 3 months and change.

In the words of Billy Guerin in the practice line, "jeez Sid, let someone else go first!"
