Sidney Crosby to avoid wrist surgery for now
Hart Trophy winner as NHL MVP will receive treatment instead
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.
