Alongside his dominance, though, Crosby's career has been beset by concussions. At the Winter Classic game on New Year's Day 2011 in Pittsburgh, Crosby was leveled by a blindsided hit to the head by then Washington Capitals center David Steckel. The collision forced Crosby to miss the rest of the season and fueled talk that his career might be in jeopardy.
After a tenuous and up-and-down 2011-12 season, in which he played just 22 games,
Crosby returned to full strength the following year, registering 56 points in a 36-game season shortened by a lockout.
In addition to his success in the NHL, Crosby was also instrumental in leading Team Canada to the gold medal at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Canada.
