Sidney Crosby Named to Order of Canada

“Crosby scores! Sidney Crosby, the golden goal! And Canada has once in a lifetime won Olympic Gold!” Canadians all around the world heard Chris Cuthbert’s call when Sidney Crosby shot the puck five-hole on Ryan Miller to clinch the Gold Medal in the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games.

His international clutchness didn’t stop there as in the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games; he scored the 2-0 goal on a breakaway as he slid the puck on his backhand past Henrik Lundqvist. Once again, his efforts were needed for Canada to clinch the Gold Medal.

On Thursday, December 29, he was named to the Order of Canada. An achievement that is one of Canada’s highest honors. It recognizes the people who have made outstanding contributions to Canadian society.

Throughout his illustrious NHL career, he has won three Stanley Cups, over 1400 points, as well as over 500 career goals. His trophy case is always getting bigger. Two-time Hart Trophy winner; 2x Art Ross winner; Two-time Maurice “Rocket” Richard winner; Two-time Conn Smythe Trophy winner. He has done it all and then some.

He is very active within the Cole Harbour community, as in 2009, he started the Sidney Crosby Foundation. A foundation that helps charities benefit children. Six years later, he started his own hockey school. Not only is Crosby a big help within the Cole Harbour community, but he helps out the Pittsburgh community as well with his “Little Penguins Program,” which provides free equipment and lessons to over 10,000 kids.

Sidney Crosby is finally an elite Canadian.
