1. Sid has never set foot in Nova Scotia. He was hatched on a mountaintop in an imaginary land high above the North Pole. He spent his formative years in hockey isolation in the clouds, only appearing on Earth for the first time on the first day of school for his year at Shattuck.
2. When he was a child Sid invented his own secret language. It had over 300 different words for “perfection”, but not a single one for “beauty”.
3. Before agreeing to his contract extension this past summer, Sid turned down three other offers from the Penguins that involved significant amounts of deferred money because he didn’t want to be burdened by unwanted ownership of a bankrupt franchise at the tail end of his career.
4. Sid has never met a Monte Cristo sandwich he hasn’t loved. Conversely, he has never met a Reuben sandwich he liked.
