Crosby willing to play out of position to be on line with Connor McDavid

Hockey fans in Canada have been robbed of several opportunities to see McDavid play with Sidney Crosby on the international stage, with the NHL not sending players to the 2018 and 2022 Winter Olympics, as well as not holding a World Cup of Hockey since 2016.
But that may change, as the NHL and NHLPA are working on a plan to have a World Cup of Hockey in February 2025 and while on a recent edition of the '32 Thoughts' podcast, Crosby said he'd be willing to play out of position for Canada if it meant he could be on a line with Connor McDavid.
For McDavid, he hasn't worn a Canadian sweater since the 2018 IIHF World Hockey Championship and it's been nearly seven years for Crosby, who hasn't represented the nation since the 2016 World Cup of Hockey, which he captained Canada to the title.
It's unclear what the 2025 World Cup of Hockey may look like as of yet, likely an eight-team tournament like previous editions, but it would certainly create a lot of excitement among fans if Crosby and McDavid are to play on the same line.
