Penguins say doctors have decided not to perform wrist surgery on Sidney Crosby

PITTSBURGH, Pa. – Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby does not need surgery on his injured wrist.

Crosby dealt with a wrist injury during the 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 that “after seeking additional medical advice, doctors have decided not to perform surgery on Sidney Crosby’s wrist,” adding that he will continue to receive treatment and be evaluated as he prepares for camp.
