Sid the Kid First Cited 6 Years Ago Today

rewindThe first instance of the name "Sidney Crosby" to appear on this site showed up six years ago today.

Sidney Crosby. Are you familiar with that name? You will be.

Sidney Crosby of the Rimouski Oceanic is the CHL Player of the Week. Crosby scored five goals and added four assists for nine points in four games last week. This 16-year-old native of Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia is being touted as "The Next One". Wayne Gretzky himself has stated that Crosby was the best player he'd seen since Mario Lemieux. Not eligible for the NHL entry draft until 2005, the legend of Sidney Crosby is already approaching epic proportions.

No pressure...

Six years later, Crosby has already had a pretty spectacular career. He became the only teenager to win a scoring title in any major North American sports league, he won the Hart Memorial Trophy as MVP and he's got a Stanley Cup ring.

I love it when "can't miss" kids don't miss.

And the youngest captain in NHL history, right?

At least, I heard that stat thrown around at one time or another.

Toronto Mike Verified as the defacto Toronto Mike

Yep, he's the youngest captain in NHL history.

Altho watching tonight's Leaf game, I'm hoping we call up Kadri and give him the C.
