Sidney Crosby, O.N.S.

Once again, Sidney Crosby has been honored by his hometown of Nova Scotia. The ChronicalHeraldMETRO reported that he will be recognized with the "Order of Nova Scotia" which pays tribute to Nova Scotia natives [ONS Wiki; actual medal received is pictured to the right].
"This year’s recipients truly embody the spirit of Nova Scotia and have made significant contributions to the province and the country," Premier Rodney MacDonald said in a news release.

"They are an inspiration to the people of this province. I thank them for their dedication and congratulate them on this prestigious honour."
The Order of Nova Scotia was established in June 2001 and members have the right to use the initials O.N.S. after their names.

And at 21, Crosby is the youngest recipient who will be awarded the honor at a ceremony held at the Province House in Halifax on October 8th. Since Crosby is such a busy guy during the hockey season, the site reports that he is unavailable to attend on this date "and will be invested in a separate ceremony at a later date."
