Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby will address the media at the Consol Energy Center this afternoon at 12:30 p.m. You can see the press conference live here at NHL.com. 

Crosby, who hasn't played since Jan. 5, continues to recover from post-concussion symptoms and there has been uncertainty about whether he'll be ready for the start of training camp or even the Oct. 6 season opener against the Vancouver Canucks.

Penguins General Manager Ray Shero has stated throughout the summer that Crosby won't be rushed back into action.

"I don't have Sept. 16 on my calendar for him, or Oct. 6. My only concern is his long-term health, keeping in mind he's a hockey player, a 24-year-old kid," Shero said last month in addressing concerns about Crosby's recovery. "I want him to feel good about himself. He'll be back at some point to play hockey. We'll see another four weeks from now when he gets back, get him evaluated, and go from there."


Quote of the Day

It is really special. I had a lot of friends and family here tonight, and for my first [NHL] game in here it was great. I played here as an elementary-school player in the city championships and this was my first time back. It was a lot of fun.
