Daniel Sedin Wins Lindsay Award, Receives Damaged Trophy

Daniel Sedin may have lost the Hart Trophy to Corey Perry at the NHL awards show on Wednesday night, but at least he took home some hardware. The Canucks winger won the Ross Trophy for leading the league in points, and he took home the Ted Lindsay Award for the MVP as chosen by the players. Even if he didn’t win the Hart Trophy, winning the other two awards was nice. Except for one minor problem … the Lindsay Award trophy was damaged goods. If you look at this picture carefully, you can see a piece of tape holding the crooked stick together:

Norm Clarke of the Las Vegas Review-Journal says one of two things can explain the damaged trophy. Clarke reported “Media members were first told that country music star Dierks Bentley may have accidentally bumped into the trophy backstage but an event rep later said the award was damaged in transit to Las Vegas, or while being transported after it arrived here.”

Because of the trophy’s damage, Sedin took most of his pictures covering up the tape on the stick. Check out the picture:

Hey, the good news is at least they gave him the correct trophy, unlike what these folks did. Maybe it’s the price Daniel pays for having his guarantee go wrong.
