Penguins' Sidney Crosby visits Swiss team for summer workout
Call it a working vacation.
Penguins captain Sidney Crosby, during a recent trip to Europe, stopped by the home rink of Swiss club HC Davos to skate, work out and meet with players and coaches for a few days, according to the team's website.
Crosby was accompanied by Penguins strength coach Andy O'Brien, who offered advice on state-of-the-art off-ice training methods, the website reported.

Such trips will be easier for Crosby to schedule this summer. After the Penguins won back-to-back Stanley Cup championships, they had fewer than 100 days between the final game of the playoffs and the first day of training camp. This year, that number should be closer to 130.
