Thursday afternoon, the @NHLonNBCSports Twitter account posted a video from NHL Media Day and it’s going to give you the willies. (And not the good kind of willies).
Pittsburgh Penguins captain, three-time Stanley Cup champion, and guy that constantly beats our favorite team in the second round of the playoffs, Sidney Crosby, is shown signing an autograph for a tiny Caps fan.

“Sid, meet kid,” NBC wrote.
Here’s the thing. I would want an autograph from Crosby too, but I would rip off my jersey and make sure no one is videotaping it first.
I’m not sure what’s weirder: this video or this quote from Braden Holtby last year.
Holtby on Pittsburgh: "It’s probably the benchmark for the league in terms of what they’ve done here. Guys are pretty lucky that play here."
