Report: Crosby to see concussion specialist
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.
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.
Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
