Pittsburgh, PA, United States (4E Sports) – The Pittsburgh Penguins announced that superstar Sidney Crosby will not undergo surgery on his ailing right wrist.
“After seeking additional medical advice, doctors have decided not to perform surgery on Sidney Crosby’s wrist,” general manager Jim Rutherford said in a statement. “Sid will continue treatments and be evaluated regularly while he prepares for training camp in September.”
Crosby was the regular-season points leader with 104 but he was limited to one goal and eight assists in 13 games in the playoffs.
It was earlier reported that Crosby will undergo arthroscopic surgery on the wrist to repair damage that “impeded his performance in the postseason.”
Earlier, Rutherford said that surgery was one of the options being considered but that no decision would be reached until this week.
