Sidney Crosby has done it all over the past year.
He's struggled on the ice. He's seen rumors swirling around him and the rest of the Pittsburgh Penguins, some of the more reactionary among us wondering if the team was facing a breakup of epic proportions. He redeemed himself. He lit the NHL on fire over the second half of the 2016 season, and all the way through the playoffs.
He won the Stanley Cup. He won the Conn Smythe. He hosted his hockey school. He hanged out with Nathan MacKinnon for another fun Tim Horton's stint. He's representing the ever-impressive Team Canada at the World Cup of Hockey, and is one of their top scorers.
And now, he's on a stamp.

Canada Post has released a new collection called "Great Canadian Forwards". It features Phil Esposito, Guy Lafleur, Darryl Sittler, Mark Messier, Steve Yzerman, and the one active player on the list: Crosby, who absolutely nobody could deny fits in among this group.
The only downside? The stamps are Canadian - although if you wanted one for collections purposes, Canada Post has them up on their site here.
