Sidney Crosby’s Road to the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics

CROSBY_SidneySidney Crosby secured Canada’s record 14th gold medal of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Games, and the nation’s eighth Olympic gold in men’s hockey, when he scored the ‘Golden Goal’, the game-winner against the United States at the 7:40 mark of overtime. Crosby, one of the Canadian Olympic hockey team’s alternate captains, finished the tournament with four goals and three assists.

Crosby played in two IIHF World Junior Championships. In 2004 he was just the fifth 16-year-old to ever play in the tournament for Canada, which won silver. Sidney Crosby became the then-youngest player to ever score a goal in the tournament at age 16, four months and 21 days.

In 2005 he helped Canada win gold in Grand Forks, North Dakota. Sidney Crosby played in his first and only IIHF World Championship in 2006 when he led the tournament in scoring with eight goals and eight assists, the youngest player ever to do so. He was named Best Forward by the directorate and to the Media All-Star Team in Canada’s fourth place finish.

Sidney Crosby became the youngest captain in NHL history, with the Pittsburgh Penguins, in 2007.
