Sidney Crosby Breaks His Silence on Future with the Penguins: What’s Next?

Sidney Crosby has made it apparent that he wants to end his career in Pittsburgh alongside his two teammates and closest friends, Evgeni Malkin and Kris Letang.

Sidney Crosby, the team’s captain, discussed his, Evgeni Malkin, and Kris Letang’s futures with the Penguins a few days after they were eliminated from postseason contention.

Crosby’s future as a Penguin was also discussed by Dave Beeston, executive vice president of the Fenway Sports Group, which owns the Penguins.

Evgeni Malkin and Kris Letang’s futures as Penguins were in question before both re-signing with the team in 2022. Malkin expressed publicly how crucial it is for him to continue playing his entire career in Pittsburgh.

“‘If this team wants new blood and young guys and they say to me to move on, we will see…I believe in my agent and I trust him. I want to stay here. I want to play in the NHL… I hope I stay here. I hope I retire here,’ Malkin said,” days before signing a 4 year, $24.4M contract extension with Pittsburgh.

Both Crosby and Letang were drafted by the Penguins in the 2005 NHL Draft, with Crosby going first overall and Letang going 62nd overall. Malkin was drafted second overall by the Penguins in the 2004 draft.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
