“Hey, Aren’t You…?”

So, you’re lacing up your skates at the outdoor rink and you look over at the only other guy there and IT’S THE BEST HOCKEY PLAYER IN THE WORLD! That was the surreal experience of 19 year Guillaume Ouimet, who found himself playing shinny with Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby in Mont Tremblant, where Crosby was vacationing during the Pens’ bye week last month. Ouimet is no slouch himself – he’s captain of his junior AA team – so Crosby asked him if he could help out with some breakout drills that Crosby wanted to work on. Ouimet says Crosby was the ultimate gentleman, posed for pictures and even accompanied Ouimet on a visit to the indoor rink where Ouimet plays his home games with the Mont Tremblant Diables. If there’s a more Canadian story than that, I haven’t heard it. (Photo credits: La Presse, nhl.com)
