Penguins captain Sidney Crosby has skated for the past six days as he continues to make progress on a core muscle injury that required surgery in mid-November.
There is no timetable for a return.
"We're just taking each day as it comes," head coach Mike Sullivan said. "We're certainly encouraged with his progress to this point. The fact that he's skating again, and has skated for a handful of games is encouraging."
Crosby, who has missed the past 16 games with the injury, had been playing through the injury until the team decided upon surgery, which was conducted on Nov. 14.
"He's making progress in his rehab process. We're encouraged by where he's at," Sullivan said. "As he gets closer, we'll update you."
