A superstition that Sidney Crosby wont give up

A superstition that Sidney Crosby won’t give up

Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby remains known for his on-ice exploits and is also known for his many little habits off the ice, some of which will likely last for a long time.

As the website Pittsburgh Hockey Now pointed out, the veteran hockey player follows some superstitions to the letter. His famous number 87 can be seen on his sweater, for example, but also on several official papers. He was born on August 7, 1987 and made a point of including his favorite number in the clauses of his contracts. He averaged $8.7 million per year from 2008 to 2013, and that’s the same on his next contract, a massive 12-year, $104.4 million pact that ends in 2024 and 2025.

The same source also confirms that Crosby’s next contractual commitment should once again feature the number 87 prominently. How could all this manifest itself?

“If the number of campaigns planned in Crosby’s next agreement remains difficult to confirm, there is no doubt about the amount of money paid. It will be some kind of permutation of 87, whether it is another contract with an average value of $8.7 million, a salary of $87 per hour or $0.87 per second acts. , estimated journalist Dave Molinari.

The 36-year-old athlete can in principle negotiate with the Penguins from July 1, 2024 on an extension of the cooperation between the two parties concerned.
