Penguins’ Crosby to Have Surgery on Wrist, Post-Gazette ReportsMichael Buteau
Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby will undergo surgery on his right wrist within the next few days, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.
The newspaper, citing a person close to Crosby that it didn’t identify, said the surgery is considered minor and won’t cause the 26-year-old center to miss playing time next season.
Penguins spokesman Tom McMillan didn’t immediately respond to an e-mail seeking comment.
Crosby led the NHL with 104 points, including 36 goals, in 80 regular-season games last season and won his second Hart Trophy as the league’s most valuable player.
