Crosby skates before news conference

Penguins/NHL Videos

Wednesday, Sept. 7, 2011
 

Penguins center Sidney Crosby skated this morning at Consol Energy Center prior to a news conference scheduled for 12:30 p.m. at which he will provide an update on his concussion.

Crosby was off the ice by 11 a.m. He has been skating on a semi-regular basis as part of an altered workout routine.

He has not played since Jan. 5 because of a concussion. As recently as last month, he was experiencing headaches after on-ice workouts, which prompted the altered routine.

Crosby is expected today to provide the latest information regarding his concussion, but details are a closely guarded secret within his camp and the organization. Aside from a brief comment in a statement released by the Penguins on Aug. 24, Crosby has not discussed his concussion publicly since April 29.

He is expected to be joined at today's news conference by concussion experts who have been treating him.
Crosby was being treated exclusively by Michael Collins, Ph.D., of UPMC before seeking alternate opinions from unnamed concussion experts in Michigan and Georgia.
