Sidney Crosby reportedly is back in Pittsburgh after a European vacation and is expected to be re-evaluated by a concussion specialist in the next week or so.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that GM Ray Shero said Crosby will see specialist Michael Collins. He still needs to be cleared before he can begin his off-season workout program.

The Penguins' captain has been sidelined since Jan. 6 when he was diagnosed with a concussion. Crosby was cleared to practice without contact in April but had to stop when he experienced headaches.

Both the Penguins and Crosby have said they expect him to be able to play next season.

It's something that you don't really envision starting this way, but when you put the work in you don't feel like it's unwarranted. You definitely don't envision it unfolding this way, but you do think you can be successful at this level.
