Despite an injury shortened 2011-12 season, Sidney Crosby is reportedly receiving a huge contract extension from the Penguins totaling over $100 million.

In his seven-year career since being selected with the first overall selection in the 2005 NHL Draft, Sidney Crosby has earned several accolades, including four trips to the NHL All-Star Game and the Hart Memorial Trophy for the NHL's Most Valuable Player. Now the 24-year-old is reaping the benefits, as he will reportedly receive a huge contract extension from the Penguins on Sunday.

In the 2011-12 season, Crosby only participated in 22 games due to the lingering effects of a concussion suffered during the 2011 year. Despite his shortened season, Crosby still scored eight goals and tallied 29 assists including a two goal, two assist performance in his return to the ice against the Islanders on November 21, 2011.
