Today in Hockey History: Sidney Crosby Became the Youngest Player to Score 100 Points in NHL History

April 17, 2006: At just 18 years and 253 days old, Sidney Crosby registered an assist on Ryan Malone’s second-period goal against the New York Islanders, becoming the youngest player in NHL history to record 100 points in a season.

The 2005 first overall pick in the NHL entry draft didn’t disappoint his rookie season. Nor did it take him long to get on the scoresheet, registering an assist in his first NHL game on a pass to Mark Recchi for a power-play goal.

Two games later he scored his first NHL goal against the Boston Bruins and never looked back, collecting an impressive 39 goals and 63 assists, totaling 102 points in his rookie campaign.

With numbers like that, Crosby would’ve won the Calder Trophy (Rookie of the Year) just about any other year, but Washington Capitals rookie Alex Ovechkin came into the NHL with all guns blazing, scoring 52 goals his rookie season, capturing the Calder.
