Sidney Crosby Puts No Timetable on Return From Concussion
Sidney Crosby returned to Pittsburgh and addressed the media on Thursday, stating he expects to play again this season, but has no timetable on a return.
Crosby has not played due to lingering issues from a concussion he sustained over a month ago. "I am getting better, it's just slow," Crosby noted. "That's the tough part. There's no timetable whatsoever, it's impossible to gauge."
Crosby, who came back after a trip to his parents in Canada, talked about recent rumors regarding him missing the entire season. "That could happen. But am I sitting here packing it in? No. I hope I'm back and I hope I play this year," Crosby said. "I'm expecting to play this year."
Additionally, Penguins' general manager Ray Shero denied reports earlier in the week that Crosby would be shut down for the season.
Crosby has tallied 32 goals and 34 assists in just 41 games this season. He has not played since Jan. 5.
