The star of that triumphant squad was Sidney Crosby, captain and center-forward for the Pittsburgh Penguins. Crosby was selected first overall by the Penguins in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. Crosby is a two-time Olympic champion (2010, 2014), a World Champion (2015), a three-time Stanley Cup winner (2009, 2016, 2017), a member of the Triple Golden Club and is widely regarded as one of the greatest ice hockey players of all time.
The stick also contains the autograph of the head coach of the national team Mike Babcock – the most successful Canadian coach in history, who won absolutely all tournaments with the national team. Also the autographs of Drew Doughty and Shea Weber, who became Canada’s top scorers in that tournament, scoring seven goals altogether.
The stick is auctioned by a devoted ice hockey fan who wants to support Belarusian athletes and the champion nation!
