Sidney Crosby is a Canadian professional ice hockey player who serves as captain of the Pittsburgh Penguins in the National Hockey League. He was drafted first overall in the 2005 NHL Draft. Nicknamed "The Next One", a play on Wayne Gretzky's nickname "The Great One," he was one of the most highly regarded draft picks in hockey history.
In his first NHL season, Crosby finished sixth in league scoring with 102 points (39 goals, 63 assists) and was a runner-up for the Calder Memorial Trophy which is given to the NHL's Rookie of the Year. By his second season, he was leading the NHL with 120 points to capture the Art Ross Trophy, the NHL's trophy for scoring, becoming the only teenager to win a scoring title in any major North American sports league. That same season, he was voted the league's Most Valuable Player (Hart Memorial Trophy) and the Lester B. Pearson Award as the NHL Players Association's choice for most outstanding player, becoming the seventh player in NHL history to earn all three awards in one year.
With the Penguins, he won the Stanley Cup in 2008, defeating the Detroit Red Wings in Game 7. He is the youngest captain ever to achieve this feat.
Crosby purchased this property in 2011 for $800,000. He tore down the old house and built this 10,642 sqft home in its place.
Bing's bird's eye view still shows the old house, Google Street View features images of the new one.
