For the ninth time in his 18-year NHL career, Sidney Crosby has been named to the NHL All-Star Game.

With this ninth selection to the game, Crosby ties former Penguins great Jaromir Jagr for the second most selections in franchise history.

Crosby was named to the All-Star Game in the following previous years:

  • 2007
  • 2008
  • 2009
  • 2011
  • 2015
  • 2017
  • 2018
  • 2019

He now trails only Mario Lemieux, who was selected to the All-Star Game an incredible 13 times.

Crosby currently leads the Penguins with 19 goals, 24 assists, and 43 points.

One player has been selected from all 32 NHL teams so far — and the remaining 12 selections will be decided by a fan vote.

The vote will open at 9 p.m. tonight.
