Crosby Has First On-Ice Workout Since April

Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby has resumed on-ice workouts for the first time since April as part of his normal summer training program. Crosby missed the final 41 games of the regular season and all of the postseason after suffering a concussion back in January. The wounded center is working out near his home in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Crosby had participated in a few on-ice practices while the Penguins were in the first round of the playoffs, but was shut down after having headaches. But Crosby confidants tell the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that those headaches were from a sinus infection, not lingering concussion symptoms.

In May, Crosby’s doctor cleared him for off-ice workouts, and the Penguins were then cautiously optimistic that Crosby would be back when training camp opens in September. Crosby usually begins on-ice workouts in mid-July as part of his offseason routine, so this seems to be another good sign, but there’s still no guarantee.

The on-ice workouts were confirmed by both the Penguins and Crosby’s agent, but neither Crosby nor Penguins general manager Ray Shero wanted to comment.
