Sidney Crosby will be held out of the Pittsburgh Penguins' next two games as a precautionary measure, Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford said today.
Crosby has not been feeling well. Medical specialists made the recommendation after further test results came back today.
"There is no indication at this time that this is the mumps, but we are going to hold him out as a precaution," Rutherford said. "We'll have additional test results in a few days."
The Penguins host Calgary tonight and play at Columbus Saturday.
A number of NHL players have been diagnosed with mumps in recent weeks.
