MONCTON, N.B. (CP) - Apparently Nils Ekman can do no wrong.

Fresh off a career-high 57 points (21-36) last season where he played alongside Hart Trophy winner Joe Thornton in San Jose, Ekman gets ready for a new centre in a new city and it's not exactly a downgrade.
Nils Ekman, meet Sidney Crosby.

"It's exciting, I feel honoured," the 30-year-old Swede said Monday after practice at the Moncton Coliseum. "I want to do well here as well, maybe help Sid win the points title this year. It'll be a fun journey, I'm sure."

Ekman has skated with Crosby and right-winger Colby Armstrong since camp started and head coach Michel Therrien says that's the plan to start the season.
