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."
