Sidney Crosby celebrates a goal for the Pittsburgh Penguins
Sidney Crosby ties Wayne Gretzky with 19 straight point-per-game seasons.

Sidney Crosby continues to rewrite the NHL’s history books. With two goals and an assist against the New York Rangers, Crosby secured a 19th consecutive season averaging at least a point per game, tying the legendary Wayne Gretzky for the league record. This astonishing feat solidifies his place among hockey’s all-time greats.

The 36-year-old superstar is showing no signs of slowing down, leading the Pittsburgh Penguins with 37 goals, 45 assists, and 82 points in 74 games. Since his NHL debut in 2005, he has never averaged less than a point per game – an incredible display of consistency and dominance.

Crosby’s Scoring Streak: A Testament to Skill and Longevity

“To this day I’m still learning,” Crosby stated recently. “So, I think that’s the biggest thing.” This humility from a player of his stature highlights his relentless drive to improve.

Crosby’s longevity and production rank him second in Penguins franchise history in goals (587), assists (997), and points (1,584), trailing only the iconic Mario Lemieux. He’s also closing in on Phil Esposito (1,590 points), poised to claim 10th place on the NHL’s all-time scoring list.
