NHL superstar Sidney Crosby says he’s looking forward to playing with new Pittsburgh Penguins sniper Phil Kessel, who was acquired in a blockbuster deal with the Toronto Maple Leafs earlier this summer.
Pittsburgh Penguins star and reigning NHL MVP Sidney Crosby practiced Friday, a day after the team announced he would be held out of the early portion of training camp as a precaution for an unspecified minor injury.
Cleared to play without a plastic apparatus protecting his lower face for the first time since returning from a broken jaw, Sidney Crosby said he'll need a few days to adjust.
It appears he'll get just that.
The Pittsburgh Penguins will begin their quest for a Stanley Cup without Sidney Crosby. The star player said Wednesday his broken jaw will keep him out of Pittsburgh's playoff opener against the New York Islanders on Wednesday night.
