TBT: Sidney Crosby's colorful photoshoot from the 2005 NHL Draft


Sidney Crosby: two-time NHL MVP, 2009 Stanley Cup champion, Pittsburgh Penguins captain and... amateur model?

Looking back at Crosby's Draft Day photoshoot, that seems to be the case. In honor of the Penguins being back in -- and close to winning -- the Stanley Cup Finals right now, we dug up a few throwback gems of Sid the Kid from the 2005 NHL Entry Draft.

Crosby was selected first by Pittsburgh in 2005, followed by Bobby Ryan to Anaheim and Jack Johnson to Carolina. So far, Crosby has spent his entire career with the Penguins. He has twice been the league's leading scorer, has two Olympic gold medals and is a five-time NHL All-Star, among his many other achievements. As soon as tonight, he may be able to add another Stanley Cup to that resume.
