Pens’ Crosby back on skates

Pittsburgh Penguins’ superstar, Sidney Crosby, took a huge step forward in his rehabilitation on Monday when he skated at Consol Energy Center, and reported no setbacks. “I feel good,” said Crosby, who has missed the past 29 games due to a concussion. “It’s really early. It’s just part of progress and trying to get better.” During what was an estimated 15 minute skate Crosby, who was in full equipment, went through some skating and shooting drills. Even though it went well Crosby, who had 32 goals and 66 points at the time of injury, is remaining cautious about his progression. “I’ve been symptom-free the last few days. That doesn’t mean that when I exert myself that I won’t have symptoms. That could always happen,” Crosby said. “That’s pretty normal when you have that.” Having Crosby back on the ice is obviously a huge relief to all hockey fans, as rumours were making the rounds last week that the 23 year-old was considering retirement. Something that was strongly denied by both Crosby’s father and agent. Currently there is no set time lines as to when Crosby will once again join the Penguins, who are currently only three points behind the Philadelphia Flyers for first place in the Atlantic Division.
