Penguins Captain Out For Season Opener

The Penguin Posthas learned that Sidney Crosby will not play in the Pittsburgh Penguins’ regular-season opener in Vancouver on Oct. 6. Speaking to a half dozen reporters after the Penguins’ afternoon practice in Detroit, Crosby said, “No,” when asked if there was any chance he would play in the opener. “I wouldn’t expect it,” he added, pointing out that he has not yet been cleared for contact in practice as he continues his long recovery from the concussion that sidelined him Jan. 6. Penguins General Manager Ray Shero also said Crosby would not play in the opener, adding that there was no date set for his return. “Knock on wood, everything is progressing for him, it appears,” Shero said. “On the ice he’s practicing hard, and that’s a big part of his recovery. But there’s not a date.”
