NHL player Sidney Crosby's exploits inside hockey stadiums is well-known in the public sphere, but his personal life is rarely exposed to the world.

With no official social media handle to his name, the Canadian ice hockey player likes to keep his private details under wraps.

But, despite a conscious attempt at not sharing information of his life outside the arena, Crosby's long-time romantic relationship often finds its way to the fore.

Crosby Manages a Private Life

One of the most striking things about Crosby is the lack of any social media. His online presence is limited to the Instagram account for his charity, The Sidney Crosby Foundation, which is purely professional, and nothing other than the foundation's work is discussed.

His secrecy in matters related to his personal life is why many fans don't even know that he is in a relationship.

The same stand for secrecy and inactiveness in social media is reciprocated by his girlfriend, Kathy Leutner, who hasn't posted a single tweet despite having a Twitter account.

He Has Been in a Long-Term Relationship

Despite the ice hockey player's reluctance to discuss his private life, he reportedly has been in a relationship with Leutner since 2008.

The couple is the perfect fit for one another because her career is closely related to athletics and fitness as well. She is a popular swimsuit model who has appeared on the cover of the well-known Fitness magazine and posed for Sports Illustrated.

Juicy details about their love story have not been revealed, but the two have been spotted together since 2008, mostly in hockey matches and stadiums.

There is no news of their breakup either, which means Crosby and Leutner have been in a relationship for over 10 years now.

Leutner Is Very Supportive of Crosby’s Career

The only reason we even know about Crosby's relationship is thanks to his girlfriend, who keeps showing up at his games. She has always supported his career and is spotted regularly at his hockey matches and tournaments.

In 2014, she stood by Crosby as he raised his hockey award in Halifax waterfront.

The same year, on February 23, she had also attended the Men's Ice Hockey Gold Medal match between Canada and Sweden to watch her boyfriend play at Bolshoy Ice Dome in Russia.

When he gave his famous emotional speech about his career in 2019, Leutner watched from the audience with Crosby's dad. She appears to be there for him in his proudest moments, cheering and encouraging him.

They Remain Unmarried to Date

While Crosby and Leutner clearly care for each other, there is no evidence to suggest that they have been married, even after over 12 years of relationship.

It is important to note that since both of them live such low-key lives, the two might very well decide to keep the wedding a private affair as well.

But so far, there hasn't been any update on their marital status, and they seem to be content being in a relationship without tying the knot.
