NHL superstar Sidney Crosby's place on the “Mount Rushmore” of hockey is all but assured. The Halifax native's career reads like a treasure chest of hockey trophies, with multiple Stanley Cups and individual awards in there, not to mention an Olympic Gold medal-winning goal that will live on forever.

Hosted by Joe Manganiello, this audiobook tells the tale of Sidney Crosby's incredible career, from the first pair of skates to the NFL draft to lifting Lord Stanley with the Pittsburgh Penguins and beyond.

He is on par to Wayne Gretzky who carved out his own niche as an incredible goal scorer, playmaker, captain, and icon.
An essential addition to the listening library of all sports enthusiasts, this celebration of all things Sidney Crosby will win new fans and charm longtime followers of his career alike. The inspirational story of hockey superstar Sidney Crosby may well have been the saving grace for the Pittsburgh Penguins franchise, and it is a story well worth hearing.
