Kukla's Korner Hockey

From Rob Rossi at the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review,
Crosby is entering the final season of a three-year, entry-level contract he signed shortly after the Penguins made him the top pick in the 2005 NHL draft. All he has done since signing that deal—which, with performance incentives, has paid him well (almost $4 million annually) over the past two years—is halt the Penguins’ six-season playoff drought, become the youngest athlete to lead any North American professional league in scoring and win acclaim by both his peers and the hockey media as the league’s most valuable player.
He will turn 20 on Aug. 7. The Penguins can start talking today to his agent, Pat Brisson, about a lengthy contract extension, under terms of the league’s collective bargaining agreement.
