Another award nomination for Sid and for a member of the Penguins. From the NHL: Crosby, 25, missed most of the previous two seasons dealing with concussion issues, and then the first half of the 2012-13 season -- along with the rest of the League -- during the lockout.

Ray Shero is a Finalist for the General Manager of the Year Award

We totally forgot this was even an award. From the NHL: Shero made the seventh season of his tenure in Pittsburgh an active one.

And then at the NHL Trade Deadline, he acquired forwards Jarome...

Senators-Penguins Preview
