Crosby Freaks Out a Bunch of Young People

Yes, Sidney Crosby was at it again, scaring young children speechless.


Sid the Kid became Sid the Coach on Tuesday.

Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby came to Pittsburgh to take part in the Pittsburgh Penguins Youth Hockey School at the RMU/Island Sports Center on Neville Island.

Crosby served as a guest instructor throughout the day, much to the amazement of the star-struck campers.

“It’s amazing for the kids to get to experience that. Not many kids get the chance to get on the ice and play hockey with Sidney Crosby or have him teach some of the things he’s learned along the way,” said Penguins assistant coach Mike Yeo, the camp’s lead instructor. “I think it just shows the character of a guy like Sidney Crosby to take time out of his busy summer to come out here and be with the kids. It’s great for the kids, the community and the game.”

When presented with the opportunity to serve as a guest instructor at the hockey school, Crosby couldn’t pass it up. He flew to Pittsburgh at his own expense because he knows how much of an impact the experience is for youngsters.

“It’s fun. I can remember being 6 or 7 and Brad Richards taught me at a hockey school and now I am playing against him,” he said. “It’s kind of funny how things work like that. You always remember those times in your life when you meet people like that. To be able to do it here is nice.”
