Pens’ Crosby gets green light for off ice workouts


It’s a sure bet that NHL brass are feeling much relived as they learned on Thursday that league superstar, Sidney Crosby, is rapidly progressing from his concussion injury, which he suffered at last year’s outdoor game, against the Washington Capitals. A few months ago it was rumoured that  Crosby, who at 23 years of age is the face of the league, might have to retire due to the nagging symptoms. Besides  being an elite goal scorer the NHL had to be worried about losing such a true gentleman who can really sell the game. Apparently, on Tuesday Crosby had an appointment with  Dr. Michael Collins who gave Crosby the green light for starting his summer workout program in three weeks time. ” I met with Sid on Wednesday, before he left for home,and talked to Dr. Collins,” Penguins general manager, Ray Shero, said. “Crosby will resume his workouts and get back into his program in Cole Harbour.” “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.” Prior to getting injured Crosby was leading the league with 32 goals and 66 points in only 41 games.
