Penguins Star Sidney Crosby Out Indefinitely With Concussion-Like Symptoms

NHL

Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby is out indefinitely with concussion-like symptoms, NHL.com reports.

This is the second stint Crosby will spend missing time due to a concussion he originally suffered during the Winter Classic when the Penguins matched up against the Washington Capitals on New Year’s Day 2011. Following that hit, Crosby was forced to miss 68 consecutive games. The star center was cleared for contact Oct. 13 and in his first game back against the New York Islanders, the 24-year-old tallied two goals and two assists.

Since his stellar comeback performance, Crosby had appeared in seven more games but has missed the Penguins’ last two. Crosby has apparently been suffering with concussion-like symptoms for more than a week now. However, he feels much better than he did when he was initially diagnosed with a concussion.
