PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Despite numerous denials, it appears Sidney Crosby was indeed battling an injury during the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
The Pittsburgh Penguins confirmed that Crosby has been undergoing treatment on a right wrist injury he suffered during the season.
General Manager Jim Rutherford released a statement about the injury saying, “Sidney Crosby has been undergoing treatment on a right wrist injury that he suffered during the season. Sid is getting medical advice to determine the best path moving forward, including the possibility of arthroscopic surgery.
No final decision has been made on surgery at this point. We expect to have a decision by early next week.”
Crosby struggled to produce in the playoffs and only registered one goal and eight assists in 13 games.
Fortunately, he is not expected to miss any time in the upcoming season.
Last month, Crosby took home the Hart Trophy, Art Ross Trophy and the Ted Lindsay Award at the NHL’s awards ceremony in Las Vegas.
