Sidney Crosby's incredible overtime winner in Edmonton in October is nominated for the NHL's goal of the year.
“You guys all say that McDavid’s better than him, and then he has the puck the whole game and finishes off like that,” Patric Hornqvist said of the goal after the game. “That’s why he’s the best player in the world. I think he showed tonight who is the best player in the world. He always shows up when you guys say he’s not the best anymore and all that. Then he comes in and does that. Probably the nicest goal through his whole career. It says a lot.”
The Goal of the Year award is one of 20 categories of the NHL's Fan Choice Awards, where fans can vote on nominees through June 15.
Crosby is one of four nominees for the award.
Connor McDavid's 40th goal of the season is another nominee. McDavid pulled the puck between his own legs then lifted it for this absurd goal against the Stars:
Mikael Backlund great move in Washington is nominated:
Aleksander Barkov's ridiculous between-the-legs shot is the final nominee:
Crosby and Nathan MacKinnon's time with the Kenyan hockey team is nominated for Best Feel-Good Moment, as is Penguins fan Jeff Lynddonating a kidney to fellow fan Kelly Sowatsky.
