RIMOUSKI, Quebec -- By the time a 16-year-old Sidney Crosby arrived in the city of Rimouski, he had already become accustomed to dealing with high expectations.

Selected with the first pick in the 2003 Quebec Major Junior Hockey League Draft by the Rimouski Oceanic, the center from Nova Scotia was already being compared to some of the greatest players of all time.

Almost exactly 14 years to the day after he first stepped onto the ice at Colisée Financière Sun Life in Rimouski, Crosby personally requested to revisit the city where he had spent two years of development on Monday with the Stanley Cup, which he won for the third time in his career with the Pittsburgh Penguins last season.
