The NHLPA may not be one of the first places you think to look to learn more about your favourite players, but sometimes they do, indeed, go out of their ways to share the lighter side of things.
For example, take one of their latest: a brief Q&A with Sidney Crosby.
There’s all the basic information there, written by his own hand (which is, thankfully, rather legible; it’s not a high bar, but it’s more than we can say for, well, some others). But then we get into the fun stuff: such as Crosby’s love of pizza, or TV shows with a very specific aesthetic.
The best parts, though? One: his repeating that one beautiful sentiment he seems to have been on about forever, getting to do something he loves every day. And why not? He’s right.
And two: if he could go anywhere with anyone in the world, he would go to Russia with Evgeni Malkin. Aw. Now that’s just the best.
