Published February 16, 2022 at 8:25

Last night Sidney Crosby scored his 500th career goal. He's come a long way from being "Sid the Kid". Crosby became only the 2nd active player to achieve this goal, behind Alexander Ovechkin who hit the mark 6 years ago.

As soon as Crosby scored the goal the Penguins bench cleared to celebrate with their captain.

The Penguins also had a special tribute planned from Penguins Legend, Mario Lemieux.

Soon after Penguins PR began to tweet out some rather impressive stats about Crosby's achievement.

Congrats Sid!
