Penguins center Sidney Crosby spoke to Hockey Night in Canada reporter Elliotte Friedman during Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final on Monday in Los Angeles and gave a glowing report of his health.

Crosby reported that he has resumed normal summer workouts.

“I feel great,” he said. “This is really the first summer I've had in a couple of summers to get ready for next season. I'm excited. I'm ready to go.”

Crosby attended last night's game with his agent, Pat Brisson.

Crosby sustained a couple of nasty hits in the first round of the playoffs against the Flyers — notably a collision with teammate Evgeni Malkin. Crosby admitted after the series that he would have preferred avoiding those collisions. But he confirmed that none of the hits he withstood in the series disrupted his health.

Crosby missed 101 games over the past two seasons because of concussion problems.

He's not only working out this offseason but also is taking interest in the NHL's Collective Bargaining Agreement, which expires Sept. 15. He said he met yesterday with Donald Fehr, the head of the NHLPA.

“For any player,” Crosby said, “it's nice to get up to speed and talk to Don. I'm going to be involved.”
