Penguins center Sidney Crosby met with Dr. Michael Collins of UPMC Tuesday and is starting his summer program of off-ice workouts. He will be joined by his long-time personal trainer for the next 2-3 weeks as he works back into his routine in Cole Harbor, Nova Scotia, according to Penguins general manager Ray Shero.
“I met with Sid Wednesday before he left for home and talked to Dr. Collins,” Shero said. “(Crosby) will resume his workouts and get back into his program in Cole Harbor.”
Collins is the UPMC specialist who has been monitoring Crosby's condition since he suffered a concussion in January.
Crosby, who spent the past three weeks on vacation, will not start on-ice workouts until late July or early August, which is his normal offseason workout schedule.
"Everything will be closely managed by Dr. Collins in terms of his progression leading up to him getting on the ice later in the summer per his usual routine,” Shero said.
