Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby does not need surgery on his injured wrist.
Crosby dealt with a wrist injury during the Stanley Cup playoffs and a report out of Pittsburgh last week indicated he needed surgery to fix the issue in time for training camp.
But the Penguins announced Tuesday on Twitter:

Crosby had just one goal and eight assists in 13 playoff games.
The Penguins were eliminated in the second round by the New York Rangers.
