Sidney Crosby will run with the Olympic torch next month

CTV reports Crosby will have his chance to run with the torch next month as it makes its way through Nova Scotia and across the country towards Vancouver.  Sid will be part of a torch relay that also includes runs from Vancouver's Trevor Linden and Phoenix Suns point guard Steve Nash.

Quoteth Sid:

"I am honoured and thrilled to have the opportunity to carry the Olympic flame in my home province of Nova Scotia.  The torch relay will pass through so many communities and hands on the way to Vancouver and I'm privileged to be part of that special group as the Olympic Flame makes its way to Vancouver for the 2010 Winter Games.''
