Sidney Crosby Skates For First Time Since Suffering Concussion

Sidney Crosby took the ice Monday at Penguins' practice for the first time since he's been out of the lineup with a concussion. He's missed 29 games thus far, and as the playoffs approach, the news of his return to the ice is obviously encouraging. 

The Penguins released a video of their star on the ice at CONSOL Energy Center.

There's still no timetable for Sid's return to the lineup, and in reality, with a concussion issue like this, it's impossible to know. We simply don't know what his current symptoms are or how those symptoms are affected by a brisk, 15 minute morning skate. 

With that said, the fact that he's able to get back on the ice and just resume basic hockey stuff is obviously a great sign. The Penguins surely won't rush him back, but if he's able to get back for the postseason, the team automatically has to be placed in the "Cup contender" category.
