Sergei Bobrovsky already has a Vezina Trophy on his mantle this offseason and was a finalist for the Hart Trophy. Unfortunately, he will not be adding an ESPY to his collection in 2017.

Bobrovsky was a nominee for “Best NHL Player” but lost out to Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby, who is now a three-time Stanley Cup champion before his 30th birthday. Insane.

That’s not to take anything away from Bobrovsky’s MVP-caliber performance throughout the season, which was key in helping the Blue Jackets to 50 wins for the first time in franchise history.

We’ve covered Bobrovsky’s season in-depth and it’s not a surprise to see him recognized among the league’s top players; what he accomplished this season was unmatched among his peers and he probably deserved a few more MVP votes than he finished with.

You had one hell of a season, Bob. Try not to let this ESPY defeat get you down.
