He’s also famous because of a tumble dryer. When he was young, he used this dryer to practice his shots in his parents basement. This dryer is now in a museum and is nicely dented. The dryer can be seen in the Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame located in Halifax, the town where he was born. A commercial was also made about this.

Between 2003 and 2005, Crosby played with the L’Océanic de Rimouski junior team in the QMJHL (short for Quebec Major Junior Hockey League). In the 2005 NHL Entry Draft, he was first selected by the Pittsburgh Penguins.

On October 5, 2005, when he was only 18 years old, he made his debut at the highest level in the NHL. His first game was a duel against the New Jersey Devils. 

He played his first playoffs in 2007. Sadly, the Penguins lost to the Ottawa Senators in the first round. The following year the Penguins reached the Stanley Cup final, but lost the final against the Detroit Red Wings.

In 2009, Crosby won the Stanley Cup with the Penguins by beating the same Red Wings. This made Crosby the youngest captain ever to win the Cup. In 2016, Crosby won the Stanley Cup for the second time and a third time in 2017. The Pittsburgh Penguins have won the Stanley Cup 5 times in their history, and the last 3 times this was with Crosby on the team.
