Crosby’s New Linemate

from the CP via TSN,
Nils Ekman, meet Sidney Crosby. "It's exciting, I feel honoured," the 30-year-old Swede said Monday after practice at the Moncton Coliseum. "I want to do well here as well, maybe help Sid win the points title this year. It'll be a fun journey, I'm sure." Ekman has skated with Crosby and right-winger Colby Armstrong since camp started and head coach Michel Therrien says that's the plan to start the season. "We believe that's going to be a pretty productive line for us," said Therrien. "(Ekman) plays well at both ends of the ice and he's got the speed to play with Sidney Crosby."
