Sidney Crosby Still Suffering From Concussion-Like Symptoms

Sidney Crosby's long road back to the ice for the Pittsburgh Penguins from a concussion sustained in the 2010-11 NHL season just keeps getting longer. Crosby's return to play for the Penguins in the 2011-12 season was made fleeting by a hit taken against the Boston Bruins earlier this December, and Crosby is still suffering from concussion-like symptoms, according to Penguins coach Dan Bylsma.

The Penguins have no timetable for Crosby's return, and the center, who has missed eight straight games with this condition, has not spoken to the media since December 12. He is taking part in light workouts, much like he did last season while dealing with the aftermath of his concussion. Crosby played in just 41 games in 2010-11.

Crosby has appeared in eight games for the Penguins this season, and has recorded 12 points in those games, including multiple points in five of them. His first game back, a two-goal, two-assist performance against the New York Islanders in November, was his best outing of 2011-12.
