Penguins 18-year old rookie Sidney Crosby has drawn comparisons to Wayne Gretzky. As a 14-year-old in hockey-crazed Canada, the natives called him ''The Next One.'' And now undoubtedly his fans on a professional level are having great expectations from him. They are hoping that this star is dazzling enough to save the franchise. It is a matter of wonder how this teenager handles all the strain and prominence that has come with being considered the future of the NHL?

But all of you should know that this wunderkind kid is an extravaganza whose mental skills are above average. He has great determination. A preview at what he's done through his career, will help you out to know that he's not just satisfied by playing in the NHL, but he pushes himself to be the best player in the league. Crosby played his first professional NHL game on October 5, 2005, against the New Jersey Devils. He appeared onto the national scene with plenty of hype and boom. He leads all rookies in scoring and is 16th in the league in scoring. The 18-year-old has scored six goals in his past six games and has helped the Penguins rebound from going winless. His performance in the first half of the 2005-06 NHL season will warrant him for the 2006 Canada Olympic hockey team.
