Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby has once again been ranked the NHL's No. 1 player, as revealed Wednesday night on the NHL on TSN Top 50 Players special.

For the first time, TSN's Top 50 ranking was determined by a group of 14 NHL coaches and general managers, representing seven Eastern Conference teams and seven Western Conference teams.

This year's NHL on TSN Top 50 Players features nine new players, four goalies, 10 defencemen and 26 players from Canada. The Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks have five players on the list, the most of any NHL team.

Just missing the Top 50 was Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price, who was ranked No. 51.
