Crosby, who turns 20 next month, became the NHL's youngest MVP since Wayne Gretzky when he was awarded the Hart Trophy last month.
The three-year contract Crosby signed as a rookie lasts through the coming season.
The team named Crosby the youngest captain in league history after last season, when he led the NHL with 120 points.
