Crosby will be playing for Canada for the fourth time in his career. He captured a gold medal at the 2005 World Junior Championship after defeating Alex Ovechkin's Russian team in the Final and won silver at the 2004 tournament, after Canada gave up a 3-1 lead to the U.S. in the third period.

Played on Canada's top offensive line at the 2005 World Juniors with Patrice Bergeron and Corey Perry, now of the Boston Bruins and Anaheim Ducks, respectively.

Played on one of the all-time great Canadian teams at the 2005 World Junior Championships -- along with fellow 2010 Olympians Mike Richards, Brent Seabrook, Shea Weber, Corey Perry, Patrice Bergeron and Ryan Getzlaf.

Received the call that he was a member of Canada's 2010 Olympic team from one of his boyhood role models, Steve Yzerman.  "To receive the call from him was pretty special."

Became the youngest player to ever win the scoring title at the World Championship in 2006 (18 years of age) in Riga, Latvia (8-8-16 in 9 games), playing on a line with Boston's Patrice Bergeron and St. Louis' Brad Boyes.

On Dec. 28th, 2003, at 16 years, four months and 24 days, became the youngest player to ever score a goal for the Canadian Junior Team.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
