Crosby is Youngest Art Ross Trophy Winner
Congrats to Sidney Crosby, who this week became the youngest winner of the Art Ross Trophy, given to the NHL player with the most points scored in a season. Crosby posted 120 points (36 goals and 84 assists in 79 games). That’s six points more than Joe Thornton. The 19-year-old also became the youngest NHL’er to rack up 200 career points. Crosby went past that milestone when he was 19 years and 207 days old, 140 days earlier than Wayne Gretzky did.
Now Crosby is headed into the Stanley Cup playoffs for the first time in his career. The Penguins started their run for the cup last night against Ottawa, loosing 6-3. The next game of the series is Saturday.
