Sidney Crosby has been dating Kathy Leutner since 2008, right around the time the Canadian professional ice hockey player began emerging as a superstar.
The two have dated for over a decade, yet their marital status remains unchanged. Perhaps the two will tie the knot in the near future.
The pair met in 2008 through a mutual friend, but have kept their personal life under wraps, and Leutner is not active on social media.
Leutner hails from Virginia and is an established model who has worked with brands such as Abercrombie & Fitch and has appeared in Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Edition.
She pursued her career in modeling straight after high school, forgoing a college education in order to become a professional model.

Like his father, Crosby also played in the QMJHL as a member of the Rimouski Oceanic, prior to becoming one of the greatest players in NHL history.

He played for Team Canada in the Olympics, earning a gold medal in 2010. He took home two Hart Memorial Trophy MVP awards throughout his career, and has been to the Stanley Cup Playoffs in 13 seasons.
