Sidney Crosby ties Wayne Gretzky for career point record

Published April 2, 2024 at 11:43

Earlier this evening, Sidney Crosby has done it again and now stands beside Wayne Gretzky having tied his record of 19 point per seasons, the most in league history.

Even though the Penguins have had a tough season and are likely not to make the playoffs, Crosby has been a machine and now stands with Wayne Gretzky as he has now had 19 point per game seasons in his career which is outstanding.

During this game, whether it's playing the Rangers or something to prove, Crosby had an amazing night as he had two goals and one assists for three points and was a + 3 with 19 minutes and 39 seconds of ice time. Even with the Rangers putting 10 more shots on goal and out hitting the Penguins, the Penguins stood tall and won the game 5-2.

This season has been a challenge for Crosby as the desire to continue to win cups still burns within him and there were many rumors on the web of a potential trade that could see him go to a cup contender to satisfy those desires including waiving his no trade clause to two Canadian hockey teams.

However, the loyalty he has given the Penguins Overpowered the want to leave and it's likely that he will sign his final contract with the Penguins as he would be able to negotiate an extension this summer.

In the mean time, the Penguins will need to evaluate their team throughout this summer and general manager Kyle Dubas will need to make changes to bring the competitiveness back two Pittsburgh.

In Oilers news, the watch is on for Connor McDavid to become one of the fastest players to reach the 1000 career point milestone. He's now got 11 games to score 24 points, and it's absurd how that's even possible for him. Perhaps down the line, McDavid comes to threaten to pass both Gretzky and Crosby with this same record.
