During his second season in the QMJHL, Crosby secured a five-year contract with Reebok worth more than $1 million—the largest endorsement in hockey at the time, according to Brisson. In 2006, during his second year in the NHL, he fulfilled his uncle's forecast by adding Tim Hortons to his portfolio. Uncle Terry had predicted that if Crosby played two more seasons in the QMJHL, he would be ready for a career in coffee.
Crosby made his debut in a Reebok commercial that was aired during Super Bowl XLII. The ad, which features current and former NFL players such as Tony Gonzalez, Brett Favre, and Mike Webster, who all sported custom-made Reebok shoes featuring a black-and-white photo of Crosby on their heels, was released approximately one month before the start of the 2008-09 NHL season. The ad immediately generated buzz around the league because it showed off Crosby's incredible skill set to perfection. He is seen doing everything from speeding through the neutral zone to scoring a goal while being covered by two opponents. The video also includes cameos from some of the other top young stars in hockey at the time, including Evgeni Malkin, Alex Ovechkin, and Jarome Iginla.
In September 2009, just over a year after signing with Reebok, Crosby announced that he had terminated his contract with the company.
He is the youngest player in NHL history to earn 100 points in a season at the age of 18 years and 253 days.
