Nathan MacKinnon Wins Lady Byng Trophy For Sportsmanship 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sat Sep 12, 2020 6:15 am

Nathan MacKinnon wishes he were still playing for the Stanley Cup, but after learning he won another individual award, the Colorado forward found a silver lining.

In the friendly rivalry between the two best hockey players from the Maritimes town of Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia, MacKinnon can now boast he has won the Lady Byng Trophy that Sidney Crosby hasn\'t. He also won the Calder Trophy for rookie of the year his first season, which Crosby lost to Alex Ovechkin.

\"I got the Calder and the Lady Byng now on him,\" MacKinnon said Friday after winning the award for sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct. \"That\'s about it. That\'s probably all I\'ll ever get on him.\"
