TORONTO -- Maclean's magazine has chosen Sidney Crosby of the NHL's Pittsburgh Penguins as its newsmaker of the year.

Maclean's says the 23-year-old Cole Harbour, N.S., native was chosen for his gold medal-winning goal against the U.S. at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games.

The magazine says Crosby's overtime goal was on a "higher plane" than the wars, natural disasters and political upheavals of 2010.

Maclean's says the goal united Canadians and dwarfed Crosby's other achievements, which include a Stanley Cup and a host of personal awards.

A fan favourite, Crosby leads all players in voting for the NHL all-star game to be played Jan. 30.
