Sidney Crosby beat Alex Ovechkin again this season, even while sitting out most of 2011 with a concussion.

The Penguins' captain led the NHL in jersey sales for the sixth straight season, according to SportsBusiness Daily, with Ovechkin coming in second on the list.

Chicago teammates Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane were third and fourth on the list, and Pittsburgh's Evgeni Malkin rounded out the top five.
