Sidney Crosby handed Stanley Cup to Trevor Daley first for great reason


When Sidney Crosby was presented with the Stanley Cup after the Pittsburgh Penguins defeated the San Jose Sharks Sunday night, he skated around with it for a few moments before handing it off to defenseman Trevor Daley, a somewhat unexpected recipient.

As’s Dan Rosen informed us, Crosby had a very good reason for passing the Cup to Daley first.

Daley missed the final nine games of the playoffs with a broken ankle. His mother is battling cancer.

“It was pretty special,” Daley said of Crosby handing him the Cup first. “He’s a great player, but he’s an even better person. There’s not much more you can say about that guy. He’s a special guy.”

This was Daley’s first Stanley Cup in 11 NHL seasons. We wish him and his family the best as his mother fights cancer.
