Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby scored the 399th goal of his career Sunday in a 5-2 win against the New York Rangers. Crosby is now only one goal away to 400 career goals. Once he'll score his next goal, he will become only the 13th player with centre as their primary position to score 400 goals by the age of 30. Crosby has 17 goals and 30 assists for a total of 47 points in 46 games played so far this season.

Drafted first overall by the Penguins in 2005, Crosby played 828 games in the NHL so far, scoring 399 goals and 675 assists for a total of 1074 points. The 30-year old forward added 164 points in 148 playoff games. He helped Pittsburgh to win three Stanley Cups (2009, 2016 and 2017). Crosby also won two gold medals with Team Canada at the Olympics (Vancouver in 2010 and Sochi in 2014). The Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia native has been awarded with 12 individual trophies since the start of his career in the NHL.

The Penguins are currently fourth in the Metropolitan division with a record of 24-19-3. They have won their last four games. Pittsburgh will play their next game against the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday.
