On Saturday, Sidney Crosby makes his 1000th appearance for Pittsburgh.
At the same time, it is shockingly rumored about a trio for the icon.
– It’s definitely something new for me to do, he says.
Sidney Crosby, 33, has been loyal to the Pittsburgh Penguins since joining the club in 2005.
The Stanley Cup three-time champion is in his 14th season as team captain and it’s hard to imagine him in another NHL club.
But recently there has been talk of a possible move for the star center. TSN insider Darren Dreger has speculated in the Colorado Avalanche of New York Rangers as future club addresses if Pittsburgh would miss the playoffs this year.
“Nothing has changed”
Something that Crosby himself strongly goes out and denies.
– Nothing has changed. (The rumors) is definitely something new for me to get involved with and hear about. But I love playing here. This is where I want to play the rest of my career. I can not control what is said, but that is my attitude to everything, he says according to nhl.com.
Do not see the end
Crosby further says he has not yet begun to see the end of his career. His current contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins runs through the 2024/2025 season.
– As long as I feel fresh, I would like to play as long as possible. It’s hard to say any age as a number. I focus on fulfilling my contract and then we will see it, he says.
