PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Sidney Crosby’s recovery took another small step in the right direction Wednesday morning.

According to KDKA-TV’s Jory Rand, Crosby has been cleared by doctors to participate in the team’s morning skates and he will accompany the team on their upcoming road trip to Florida.

This is just the next step in his recovery. If he is able to get through the morning skates without any issues, he will be allowed to participate in practices.

General Manager Ray Shero said that the team “has no expectations for [him to] return in the regular season.”

Crosby has not played since being injured against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Jan. 5.

Despite the injury, Crosby still leads the team with 66 points (32 goals, 34 assists). Overall, he’s tied for 19th in the league in points and is still in the top ten in goals.

The Penguins will play the next two games on the road against Tampa Bay on Thursday and Florida on Saturday.
