Sidney Crosby Returns To Ice After Lengthy Time Off Following Concussion

While Pittsburgh Penguins fans will need to wait until October to see Sidney Crosby play in an actual NHL game again, the star player is back on the ice again after suffering concussion symptoms for the latter half of the season. Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports that the Penguins and Crosby's agent have confirmed the center's return to on-ice workouts, which he would usually begin around this time normally.

This comes just several weeks after doctors had given Crosby the OK to return to the ice. He had attempted a comeback in April during the playoffs, but headaches prevented him from doing so. However, Rossi reports:

Crosby's confidants believes [sic] those headaches were the result of a sinus infection and not a recurrence of concussion symptoms.

The original concussion came as a result of two hits at the start of January. After Jan. 5, Crosby did not play in another game. With the return of Crosby and Evgeni Malkin to the ice this fall, the Penguins will surely be considered a top team in the Eastern Conference
