Sidney Crosby could have a future in another sport if he hangs up his skates.
Perhaps the Pittsburgh Penguins star will give celebrity boxing a shot. He’s definitely got a nice left hook.
On Saturday night against the Capitals, Crosby was frustrated with Washington center Nic Dowd and threw a left hand to his mouth in the 6-3 loss in Pittsburgh.
First, Crosby tied Dowd up and then threw the punch. It would have been a penalty but the Capitals scored in that game and nullified the decision as defender Dmitry Orlov scored his 11th goal of the season to make it a 5-1 game.
Earlier this season, Crosby also came into play with the Capitals. The 34-year-old center avoided suspension in November after throwing defender Martin Fehervary in the gang. He wasn’t penalized for that game, although the highlight made waves on social media.
