Crosby named NHL’s rookie of the month

It didn’t take long for Sidney Crosby to earn accolades in the NHL.
The Pittsburgh Penguins forward was named the league’s rookie of the month for October. In 11 games, Crosby led all rookies in scoring with 14 points (two goals, 12 assists). Crosby won the award despite Alex Ovechkin’s 8 goals in 11 games.

“The future starts tomorrow night,” Hitchcock said after practice Wednesday.
