Sidney Crosby is NHL's 3rd Star for December

Chalk up yet another little award for Sidney Crosby on his road to the bigger prizes...

From Karen Price of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:

Penguins center Sidney Crosby was named the NHL’s third star of December, behind Jarome Iginla of the Calgary Flames and Detroit Red Wings goaltender Dominik Hasek.

Crosby, 19, was second among all scorers in December with 26 points (seven goals, 19 assists) in 14 games, and used a career-high six-point night on Dec. 13 to take over the NHL lead in scoring for the first time in his career. The only other teenager to lead the league in points at any time during the modern era was Wayne Gretzky at the end of the 1979-80 season and against early in 1980-81.

Going into tonight’s game against the Carolina Hurricanes, Crosby has 58 points in 34 games.
