Sidney Crosby Facing Possible Arthroscopic Surgery On Wrist

Well, it turns out Sidney Crosby was injured last season after all.

According to the Pittsburgh Penguins’ general manager Jim Rutherford, captain Crosby has reportedly been receiving treatment on a right wrist ailment he sustained this past season – per the Pens’ Twitter handle.

In addition, Rutherford said that while a decision has yet to be made, Crosby could possibly undergo arthroscopic surgery to repair the issue. A ultimatum is set to be made early next week – per the Pens’ Twitter handle.

Theories began to swirl as to why Crosby endured such a miserable postseason numbers wise, and one rumor was that Crosby might have been playing injured. However, Crosby denied being injured.

Now, the Hart Trophy recipient is in all likelihood going under the knife.

Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that Crosby will have surgery, and that a source close to the captain said the operation “is not major, but you can’t play the same way.”

Crosby is not anticipated to miss the start of next season.
