Sidney Crosby was back on the ice this morning, skating for what is believe to be the first time since the Pittsburgh Penguins star’s jaw was broken by a flying puck March 30.
Crosby, the Post-Gazette.com’s Dave Molinari reports, worked out on the ice at Consol Energy Center with Mike Kadar, the team’s conditioning coach, for about 35 minutes.
Crosby, who underwent surgery to repair his jaw and teeth, wore a plastic shield besides his usual visor and still requires a couple of root canals, the Tribune-Review’s Josh Yohe reports. The Penguins, 4-2 since Crosby has been out, have offered no timetable for Crosby’s return. Their regular season ends April 27.
