Crosby: Youngest to reach 90!

Sir Sidney has broken one NHL record already in his young career: The youngest player to break the 90-point plateau.

Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins is the youngest player in National Hockey League history to score 90 points, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

By scoring four points at Florida Friday night, Crosby improved his season totals to 36 goals and 55 assists for 91 points. He reached the 90-point mark at the age of 18 years, 243 days. The previous standard was set by Hall of Famer Dale Hawerchuk, who scored his 90th point at the age of 18 years, 343 days.
Unfortunately, Sid won't likely reach the century mark like Hawerchuk did. Still, Hawerchuk got his 100 in an era where offense was much easier to come by.
