IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: SIDNEY COSBY - HOCKEY PLAYER

Rate this Entry

Every year the National Hockey League awards the Hart Memorial Trophy to the league's most valuable player. This past season they chose Sidney Cosby, the Canadian-born Captain of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Cosby's achievements certainly warranted recognition. Cosby took the league by storm becoming when he entered in 2005 and last year scored the most goals, the first time a teenager every accomplished this not only in hockey, but any North American major professional sports league. Cosby won the Art Ross Trophy last season for scoring all those goals. He also won the Lester B. Pearson Award which is presented to the player chosen by the NHL Players Association for the most valuable player. Cosby is just the seventh player in NHL's 90 year history to win all three awards in the same season.

    As a lifelong Penguins fan I can say this is the best immigrant of the day ever- unless of course you did Mario Lemieux once and I missed it. One addition - you mentioned captain, but forgot to mention he is the youngest captain in NHL history. He also has a career long 11 game point streak through last night.

    The correct spelling is Crosby.

    Is Jarom?r J?gr a US citizen now? He's another ex-Penguin who deserves a mention. I was in Pittsburgh when Lemieux came back from retirement. Unfortunately, injuries forced him to retire after a couple of seasons.

    Its funny that someone named Sid is commenting on the Crosby article.... I don't believe Jagr is a citizen. He still plays for the Czech Republic national team and a reliable source (*cough* Wikipedia) doesn't say anything about him becoming a citizen.

    Jagr was, however, the first non-US or Canada born player drafted in the first round of the NHL.

    Being a US citizen generally would not bar a sports person from competeting for a different team. Some sport competitions don't even require all cometitors to have citizenship of the countries they represent. The Olympics is the only competition I know that requires every athlete to have citizenship of the country they represent (remember Tanith Belbin, the Canadian figure skater, who had to obtain US citizenship before the Olympics - she had been competing for the US for several years without being a citizen). So, the circumstances may vary by country (some countries do not recognize dual citizenships) and sport.

    Since the US allows dual citizenship, many sportsmen continue to play for their home countries in Olympics. In fact, this was a major point of contention regarding some Olympic swimming gold medalists (Martin Lopez-Zubero is one of them). They live and train in the US but prefer to represent their home countries.
