The most prized Olympic gold medal in Canadian history never sees the light of day.
In fact, Sidney Crosby can’t remember the last time he’s looked at his Olympic gold, if ever, after receiving it following his overtime goal to win the 2010 Olympic hockey final.
“I don’t think I’ve looked at it since,” Crosby said, according to the Toronto Sun. “Don’t get me wrong. I’m proud of it, but I don’t think I’ve looked at it.
“It’s more about getting another one, isn’t it?”
The medal is stuffed in a drawer in Crosby’s home in Coal Harbour, Nova Scotia, according to the report.
Crosby’s mementos from the game itself — the stick he used and the puck he shot to beat U.S. goalie Ryan Miller, the gloves he threw in the air — are in the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto.
