It appears Penguins center Sidney Crosby will go through a normal summer workout routine in the hopes of being healthy for the start of training camp.
Crosby who is still recovering from two concussions he suffered in January, has received clearance from Dr. Michael Collins of UPMC to resume workouts.
Crosby who was in town shortly this week to visit with his team of doctors after vacationing for several weeks, is back home in Nova Scotia where he will conduct most of his summer routine.
Expectations are Crosby will not skate for at least another 4-6 weeks as he normally doesn’t begin on-ice workouts until early August.
Following Crosby’s setback in April and the Penguins ouster in the first round, the plan has been for Crosby to get away and not resume workouts until June.
The team remains hopeful he will be healthy for the start of training camp in mid-September.
