Progressing towards training camp, Crosby said, “It’s good,” when referring to how his right wrist is feeling nowadays, and that he’s “happy with the way its gone,” per ESPN.com.
Here’s his full comments, per ESPN.com:
“It’s good. You want to see how things progress throughout the summer once you start skating and get back to that regular routine. You want to see how it reacts, so I’m happy with the way its gone.”
Following Pittsburgh’s Game 7 ouster at the hands of the Eastern Conference champion New York Rangers, Crosby remained adamant that he wasn’t injured, after speculation about his health circled due to his mere nine points (1G, 8A) in 13 postseason contests.
However, it was revealed later on down the road that Crosby was battling a wrist ailment for a good amount of time, but was able to avoid undergoing surgery after doctors saw no need, and instead has been receiving treatments and regularly evaluated.
Of course, Crosby won’t feel the affects of any soreness he may have until he tests the wrist under vigorous conditions, but the comforting comments he’s feeling content is certainly positive.
Crosby had himself an incredible 2013-14 regular-season, in what was his first full season in quite a while. Despite failing to hoist the chalice, Crosby garnered the Art Ross and Hart trophies, Ted Lindsay Award, and a gold medal for Team Canada in the Winter Games.
