It seems that missing the playoffs for the first time since his rookie campaign won't sway Sidney Crosby from staying loyal to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The 35-year-old was asked about playing out the rest of his career with the franchise that drafted him first overall in 2005 at his end-of-season media availability on Saturday.

"I'd love to," Crosby said, per team reporter Michelle Crechiolo. "That's been the case since Day 1. I feel really fortunate to have been drafted here. I have great memories. I've got to play with two teammates specifically for a really long time – so I'd love that to be the case."
