Patrick Sharp wins All-Star Game MVP
RALEIGH, N.C. — Patrick Sharp has the bragging rights among the Hawks’ four All Stars — and a new car.
Sharp was named the most valuable player of the All-Star Game, recording a goal, two assists, five shots on goal and a plus-2.
Sharp and Team Staal may have lost 11-10 to Team Lidstrom in the All-Star Game, but the Hawks forward did more than enough to impress voters and fans.
For Sharp, it was vindication after being omitted from the All-Star ballot.
“I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little bothered by it,” Sharp said. “It was motivation to play well and I really can’t argue with it. The Blackhawks have a ton of big names and great players and a lot of guys that deserve to be here.
“So I’m proud to be a Blackhawk in the All-Star Game and things worked out.”
Now, teammates Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane and Duncan Keith will have to hear about it from Sharp.
Kane and Keith only recorded an assist each in the All-Star Game. Toews, who needed a second chance to beat Sharp in the accuracy challenge Saturday, also had a goal and two assists.
“I’ll be sure to bring it up a few times,” Sharp said. “Jonathan and I have some unfinished business with the shooting targets [on Saturday], the accuracy shooting. We’ll have to do something back in Chicago.”
As far as the car, Sharp said his older brother Chris will probably get the Honda Crosstour EX-L he received for being the MVP.
“I’m glad I can bring the trophy home, and I know my dad and my brother will be fighting over the car,” Sharp said. “We’ll see who wins that. I think my brother Chris might win out.”
