I can't really find the article, but I remember an old Nova Scotia newspaper article showing this 8-10ish year old boy, talking about how he was the next Gretzky. I remember thinking, "oh that's neat, he's from Nova Scotia". Didn't think too much of it until Crosby got a few years older and joined the QMJHL recalling the article. So it could have been Nova Scotia biased, but I can remember Crosby being talked about in Nova Scotia since the 90s. Just something I remember
