This home black air-knit gamer by Reebok was worn by Sidney Crosby during the 2008-09 Stanley Cup winning season. Crosby was the 1st overall draft pick in the 2005 NHL entry draft and joined the Penguins immediately thereafter. He has taken the NHL by storm with his adept scoring and playmaking abilities. In his 2nd season, Sid won the Art Ross Trophy as the league’s leading scorer, as well as both league MVP awards, the Hart Trophy and the Lester B. Pearson Trophy. Year 3 saw Crosby lead the Penguins in an unsuccessful bid for the Stanley Cup. However revenge would come in his 4th season as a Finals rematch occurred and the Penguins defeated Detroit for the greatest title in sports. During the 2009 Stanley Cup playoffs, Crosby scored 31 points in his team’s 24 games played. This followed a regular season which again saw him surpass the 100 point plateau.
