Sidney Crosby Out Indefinitely With A Broken Jaw


If there’s one injury that can hurt the Pittsburgh Penguins, it’s this one.

Announcing the unbearable news Sunday, the team will now be without captain Sidney Crosby indefinitely after he completed successful oral surgery Saturday for a broken jaw – according to the Pens’ website.

Crosby was injured just a minute and 25 seconds into the game, after a scorching slap-shot deflected into his mouth, leaving the impending Hart trophy recipient with less teeth than he started with.

A huge blow to the Penguins, the rest of the team now has to step up in their captain’s absence.

This season Crosby is leading the NHL in points with 56 (15G, 41A) and is skating to a magnificent plus-26 rating.
