Player Of Destiny

Paul Henderson. Darryl Sittler. Wayne Gretzky. Mario Lemieux. Joe Sakic. Jonathan Toews. Jordan Eberle.

We can now add Sidney Crosby's name to the list. His gold medal winning goal in overtime on home ice will live on forever.

It's funny. Crosby did not have a great game or even a great tournament. But in the end, there he was, chosen by the hockey gods to score the goal of a life time. We've been calling him the Golden Boy for a while. Now he literally is.

Certain players seem to be destined for greatness. Crosby be clearly is one of those. World Junior champion. NHL scoring champion. NHL most valuable player. Stanley Cup champion. Now we add Olympic gold medalist and Canadian hockey legend.

All before his 23rd birthday.
