A good majority of the hockey world has been watching the Washington Capitals soak in their first Stanley Cup title in franchise history over the past week, but one player in particular has been putting in work on the ice during that span.
Sidney Crosby knows all about winning the Stanley Cup and the celebration that comes right after it, but this year he had to watch it all from afar. The Pittsburgh Penguins captain has spent the past week in Europe, where he’s spent some time training with members of HC Davos at their home rink in Switzerland.
Crosby was accompanied by Penguins strength coach Andy O’Brien on the trip, who offered advice on different off-ice training methods, according to the team’s website.
The two-time Conn Smythe Trophy winner was in Zurich late last week, where he also trained and interacted with plenty of aspiring hockey players.
It’s certainly not as exciting as the Summer of Ovi, but Crosby is clearly looking to recreate his previous two summers next year.
