The Pittsburgh Penguins announced Monday that captain Sidney Crosby has been diagnosed with a concussion. Just how long the Pens will be without the reigning Conn Smythe Award winner remains uncertain.
According to head coach Mike Sullivan, Crosby was injured during practice Friday, but won't say how.
Crosby sat out Saturday's preseason game vs. Columbus because he was not feeling well, and missed practice today to undergo concussion testing.
Crosby's status will be updated when more information is available.
The Penguins are set to open the season with their Stanley Cup banner raising Thursday night against the Washington Capitals.
