A 5-year-old girl sent Sidney Crosby an absolutely adorable letter to wish him well after he was hit by a puck in the mouth over the weekend.
The letter states:
I am sorry you got hit by a puck.
I hope the tooth fairy brings you a dollar.
The arrow instructs Crosby to flip to the back of the page where the young girl wrote: From Makenzie. Her mother says her daughter’s name was too long to fit on the front.
The girl’s mother, Wendy Roskwitalski, shared a picture of the letter with ESPN via Facebook. She says that her daughter also colored a picture for Crosby which they mailed to him.
Crosby lost some teeth when he was hit by a deflected puck last Saturday. He was later diagnosed with a broken jaw for which he had surgery. Though he is out indefinitely and currently on an all-liquid diet, a great letter like that has to lift his spirits.
