Crosby Receives Order of Canada Honor



Pittsburgh Penguins, Sidney Crosby

Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby has been honored by his home country for his work, on and off the ice.

He is one of 99 people chosen to receive an appointment for the Order of Canada, which recognizes Canadians for their contributions to that nation.

Order of Canada officials said Crosby was selected “for being one of the greatest hockey players of all time and for supporting community service initiatives for youth.”

Another of the recipients, comedian Eugene Levy, originally was named a member of the Order of Canada 11 years ago, but has been promoted to its highest rank, companion of the Order of Canada.
