Seems Sidney Crosby is such as obvious choice for Most Valuable Player that the league didn't see any point in waiting until June 24 in Vegas to announce it. Thanks to long-time loyal THN reader Louis-Pierre Smith Lacroix who pointed out Crosby already has "Voted 2014 Most Valuable Player" listed under Sid's 2013-14 regular season accomplishments on his

nhl.com bio page.

We're obviously huge fans of the NHL's website and everyone makes mistakes (we know it referred to the

team MVP award, not the league), but it gave us a chuckle nonetheless.
