If you’re a fan of ice hockey, then you’re probably familiar with the name – Sidney Crosby; but if you’re not, then an introduction to the captain of the Pittsburgh Penguins is necessary. Sidney Crosby is a professional ice hockey player from Canada, and he currently plays in the National Hockey League (the North American professional ice hockey league). Notably, he was the first overall pick in the 2005 draft.

Sidney is believed to be one of the greatest hockey players of all time and has been one of several players called “The Next One.” The nickname is usually given to players who are considered the next “Wayne Gretzky.” Wayne Gretzky is largely considered the greatest hockey player of all time and his nickname was “The Great One.”

Some other players including Phil Kessel, Eric Lindros, Connor McDavid, Paul Kariya, John Tavares have also been nicknamed “The Next One.” Ironically, none of the players dubbed the “The Next One” has managed to beat any of Wayne Gretzky’s records as of now.

He attended Astral Drive Junior High School, where he was a straight-A student and was considered a role model. Later on, he transferred to Shattuck-Saint Mary’s in Faribault, Minnesota to be able to take part in the school’s hockey program. He also attended Harrison Trimble High School, New Brunswick. Sidney’s younger sister – Taylor, is also a hockey player. She was a goaltender for St. Cloud State University in Minnesota.

Although he is yet to walk down the aisle, Crosby has been dating a lady named Kathy Leutner. Sidney and Kathy are currently in a serious relationship, and despite being together for over a decade, the two have kept a low profile.

Born on December 13, 1987, Kathy is the same age as her boyfriend who was also born in 1987. These two are so much in love with each other and share a bond that leaves their fans in awe. Of course, expectations are that the couple would tie the knot at any moment. But who knows they just might be very comfortable the way they are.

What Does Crosby’s Girlfriend Kathy Do For a Living?

Like Crosby, Kathy Leutner is also popular. She is a professional model whose career spans over a decade in the modeling industry. Kathy has been on the cover of several top-notch magazines and has also modeled for many notable fashion brands. Like many famous names in the industry, Kathy was discovered by a scout at a very young age. At the time, she was 18, and it all happened in a mall.

The most interesting part of her story is that modeling was among the last things on her mind at the time. She was more interested in sports and wanted to venture into Lacrosse. But then, on a certain day, she went shopping with her mother, she was spotted by a scout in a mall, and sooner than later a whole new chapter was opened.

Since the inception of her career, Kathy has worked with notable brands, including Abercrombie & Fitch, Naked & Famous, and many others. She has also been on the cover of a lot of sports magazines. Leutner, no doubt, makes a lot of money from her career and sits on a reputable pedestal among her counterparts.
