Taylor Crosby says she didn’t choose goaltending to avoid comparisons with her famous brother Sidney.
The younger sister of the NHL superstar thinks she’ll still be compared to him in terms of how far she goes in her hockey career. She’s OK with that.
“Even now, there is a comparison I think from the media or other people, but I don’t put it on myself,” Taylor said Thursday night in Calgary. “I think a lot of people will expect you to be a certain way or to be a certain type of player and be really good.
“I know I’m my own person. I try to use him as a role model and [follow] his work ethic, but I don’t compare myself to him. I’m never going to be him and he’s never going to be me.” (Photos: Jeff McIntosh/The Canadian Press)

“There’s not a lot of chase left. It’s like I’ve gotten to the top of the mountain.
