Though just 20, he has been hockey’s top ambassador for some time. He was the NHL’s scoring champion and MVP last season and was named the Penguins’ team captain in the offseason.
Now he could add the final facet to his on-ice role. Already the Penguins’ top-line center, quarterback of the power play and top-three shootout participant, Crosby will be given a chance earn a spot killing penalties.
“We need to try to add more people,” Therrien said. “There’s [Jarkko] Ruutu, who has a little bit of experience with the way we play. And we’re talking about a Crosby. We’re talking about [an Evgeni] Malkin. We’re talking about [an Erik] Christensen.”
