Sidney Crosby Will Return On Monday

Sidney Crosby will make his long-awaited return to the ice on Monday when the Pittsburgh Penguins host the New York Islanders, NHL.com announced on Sunday. Crosby has not played since Jan. 5 because of concussions but has been practicing with the Penguins for quite some time. The Penguins said Crosby will speak with the media on Monday after practice.

At the time of the injury, Crosby was having a particularly strong season and was leading the league in points. He had 32 goals and 34 assists through 41 games. The Penguins would eventually finish in fourth in the Eastern Conference, but lose in the first round of the playoffs to the Tampa Bay Lightning, who won the seven-game series. This season, the Penguins are once again sitting fourth in the Eastern Conference through 20 games.
