What does Sidney Crosby have in common with Ab McDonald, Ron Schock, Jean Pronovost, Orest Kindrachuk, Randy Carlyle, Mike Bullard, Terry Ruskowski, Dan Frawley, Lemieux, Ron Francis and Jaromir Jagr? The Penguins captaincy.
Crosby is officially the youngest NHLer to ever inherit the C, besting Vincent Lecavalier by a month. He’s the first Pens captain since Mario Lemieux retired during the ’05-’06 season.
This card is from 1993, after the Pens won back to back Cups. I remember what I was doing in 1993. Feels a little weird.
Congats, Sid. Now get that Hart!
