Sidney Crosby, the legendary Pittsburgh Penguins center, has indicated he’ll be entering contract extension discussions with the team this offseason. The 36-year-old’s current 12-year deal expires after the 2024-25 season, potentially making him an unrestricted free agent.

“Obviously, I’m going to talk to general manager Kyle Dubas and have a conversation with him,” Crosby stated. “We’ll see. I think it’s just something that I’ll have conversations with him about.”

Will Sidney Crosby Retire with the Penguins?

Despite his age, Crosby remains a dominant force, leading Pittsburgh this season with 94 points. He’s expressed a year-to-year approach to his career but hasn’t ruled out playing beyond the upcoming season.

The Penguins’ recent playoff absences add a layer of intrigue to the contract negotiations. Crosby is committed to winning, and the franchise’s ability to quickly build a contender will likely be a significant factor in his decision.
