Sidney Crosby is a Canadian professional ice hockey player for the Pittsburgh Penguins. In 2007, he became the youngest captain of a National Hockey League team.
At the 2005 National Hockey League draft dubbed the "Sidney Crosby Sweepstakes," the Pittsburgh Penguins selected Crosby with the first overall pick.
Working closely with retiring Penguins superstar Mario Lemieux, Crosby quickly acclimated to the NHL, taking the ice as the team's best player. By the end of the 2005-06 season, Crosby had emerged as one of the league's best young players, finishing with 102 points to his credit.
Crosby only continued to improve his second year. Overall, he tallied 120 points, scoring 28 goals and registering 84 assists—this despite playing the last six weeks with a broken bone in his foot.
That year, Crosby became the youngest player in league history to win the Art Ross Trophy as scoring champion. More significantly, he was the second-youngest player ever to win the Hart Trophy as the league's most valuable player. In 2009, Crosby got to hold up hockey's ultimate prize when he led Pittsburgh to its first Stanley Cup title since 1992.
Alongside his dominance, though, Crosby's career has been beset by concussions. At the Winter Classic game on New Year's Day 2011 in Pittsburgh, Crosby was levelled by a blindsided hit to the head by the Washington Capitals centre David Steckel. The collision forced Crosby to miss the rest of the season and fueled talk that his career might be in jeopardy.
After a tenuous and up-and-down 2011-12 season, in which he played just 22 games, Crosby returned to full strength the following year, registering 56 points in a 36-game season shortened by a lockout.
In addition to his success in the NHL, Crosby was also instrumental in leading Team Canada to the gold medal at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Canada.
