Crosby to address media today in Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby will address the media at the Consol Energy Center on Wednesday afternoon at 12:30 p.m.
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

There was a lot of talk off the ice. From a player's standpoint, that's not the talk in the room. GMs make decisions, coaches make decisions, but as a team you have to come together and be ready to go, and we are.
