Bio

Sidney Crosby Bio

In 2009, when President Barack Obama welcomed the Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins to the White House, he made it a point to congratulate the youngest captain ever to win the Cup, 21-year-old Sidney Crosby. Toward the end of the ceremony, Obama got a big laugh when he threw a little shade Crosby's way, remarking, "Sidney must be really fast because there's some big hockey players -- and he's not one of them."

A casual fan, Obama did not realize that Crosby had not merely withstood pounding from bigger players but gave as good as he got. It's a major part of his game. During Canada's intrasquad scrimmage before the 2005 World Junior Championship, Crosby, 5-foot-10 at the time, and the much larger Dion Phaneuf -- 6-foot-3 and 25 pounds heavier -- got into a physical confrontation that grew so heated that the coaches had to cancel the rest of that day's practice.
