He may be one of the best players in the world but if you've ever questioned why so many people genuinely despise Penguins captain Sidney Crosby, this video is going to help clear that up.

On Tuesday night Crosby delivered one of the most blatant cheap shots of the entire National Hockey League season, and he did so in a fashion that isn't going to earn him any love , especially from male hockey fans.

During a match up with the Buffalo Sabres, Crosby snuck up behind Sabres forward Ryan O'Reilly and drove his stick up right between O'Reilly's legs, hitting him in the groin and sending him down to the ice in the fetal position.

Embarrassing behavior from the man many consider the face of the NHL.
