Sidney Crosby Biography

Sidney Crosby is known as one of the most anticipated new players to lace up a pair of skates in years, he is believed by many to have innate talent comparable to that of Legendary Wayne Gretzky (also known as “The Great One”) and other NHL super stars, an assessment that has led to the nickname, “The Next One”.

Crosby was drafted first overall in the QMJHL Draft on June 7, 2003 by the Rimouski Oc??anic and he quickly went on to win the QMJHL scoring title while setting new records for 16-year-olds during his rookie season. He achieved 54 goals and 81 assists during his first season with Rimouski.

On July 22, 2005 the NHL, upon ratification of its new collective bargaining agreement, held its first ever league wide draft lottery, that was won by the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Penguins then selected Sidney Crosby as tier first selection and the first overall pick in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. It gave Crosby the opportunity to play along side the man to whom he has drawn several comparisons, Mario Lemieux.
He played his first professional NHL game on October 5, 2005, against the New Jersey Devils, and registered an assist on a goal scored by Mark Recchi. He continued his success in his next two NHL games, registering an assist against the Carolina Hurricanes on October 7, 2005, and then scoring his first career NHL goal and adding two assists against the Boston Bruins the next night. Crosby’s first NHL goal came against goaltender Hannu Toivonen and was assisted by line mates Mark Recchi and Zigmund Palffy.

On Thursday, November 4, Sidney recorded his first 2-goal game against the New York Islanders in a 5-1 win. Sidney also put up an assist for a three point night. This performance came just after receiving recognition as the October Rookie of the month. November was a very exciting month for Sidney. On November 10, he scored a shootout winning goal on home ice, against the Montreal Canadiens (Crosby’s favorite team growing up). The 18 year old sensation scored the deciding shoot out goal on a backhand shot, roofing the puck past goaltender Jose Theodore, sending the net minder’s water bottle skyward and the Mellon Arena crowd into a frenzy.

Just six days later, in Philadelphia, he was high sticked by the Flyers’ Derian Hatcher during regulation play, cutting his lip and chipping his two front teeth. However, the rough-housing only seemed to ignite and inspire the talented youngster, as he scored the game winning goal in sudden death overtime to defeat the Flyers.

  15. Hello there Sid. Ali & Whits here. You probably won’t read this so we’re gonna make it hilarious. So basically we are two Grade 12 students at Branksome Hall (or as they say skanky branky) in Toronto. Ali, a former New Yorker, recently moved back to Tdot after a long 16 years in NYC. Whits, a former bleach blonde baby, is now on the hockey team in Tdot and has never moved anywhere. Let’s just say, we think you’re a pretty cool dude. I mean we’re no fans or anything, but Ali’s brother knows every single stat in hockey since the game was created. So yeah Branksome pretty much loves you, but really you and not how you play hockey. You did a pretty awesome job with Ali’s hero Jarome #12 as you two are pretty tight partners in crime now. We just really want to be the next female versions of you and jarome pretty much. I mean what more can you ask for in life? The only thing we’ll be missing is living with Mario, but no probs we’ll just move in with Wayne. It would be pretty rad if you could come you know to branksome, I mean JBotts — Jenn Botterill came and we touched her Gold Medall wooot so it would be quite awesome to come talk to us about sports and the game, basically just so that we can say we’ve met someone cooler than well no one. oh wait yup that red head from degrassi. she went to branksome. we met her. anyway hope life is treating you well in the fab lane. make a shoutout to ALI & WHITS the next time you’re in Tdot. DONt forget. Peace biddyyy call me.
