Perhaps the most cherished prize in Canadian sport is not proudly displayed dangling on a wall for all to see.

Nor is it perched majestically in a trophy case, serving as the glistening centrepiece in a glass-encased stage showcasing what stands to be a remarkable Hall of Fame career one day.

Nope, you won’t find Sidney Crosby’s 2010 Olympic gold medal in any of these places.

Instead, the immortal momento of Crosby’s Golden Goal is stuffed in a drawer back at his home in Coal Harbour, N.S., where it anonymously collects more dust than compliments.

“I don’t think I’ve looked at it since,” Crosby admitted the other day. “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?”

There’s the rub.
