Sidney Crosby Autograph Signing Session In Detroit | Photo

Sidney Crosby signing autographs outside hotelLance Martinez of My Detroit Sports gathered this original photo of the face of the NHL, the great Sidney Crosby, as he signed autographs outside of a Detroit hotel.

Among Pittsburgh Penguins autograph signings, no name looms larger than the iconic Mr. Crosby. 

Crosby, the Penguins longtime center, is hockey’s most known and accomplished player. He is a three-time Stanley Cup champion, three-time Ted Lindsay Award winner (NHLPA Most Outstanding Player) and two-time Hart Trophy Award winner (most valuable player to one’s team).

Now in his 13th NHL season, the Nova Scotia native has amassed 397 goals and 673 assists, including 15 scores and 28 helpers during this current campaign.

Crosby’s résumé also includes six All-Star selections (from 2005 through 2014 four All-Star Games were not played) and two Olympic Gold Medals for his native Canada.

Similar to the NBA's LeBron James, Crosby was a first overall pick and “next big thing” who has absolutely lived up to the hype. Without question, the now 30-year-old Crosby stands as one of the all-time greats of his sport.
