What does this mean for the Penguins? Well, this is just one more very important step that Crosby is taking to eventually return from his concussion. Unfortunately, he is just returning to the teams morning skates, and not their full practices but this is still great news for the Penguins and their fans.
When GM Ray Shero made the announcement, he also mentioned that the team does not expect Crosby to return during the regular season which would mean he will most likely make his return in the playoffs. If that was not the case, there would be no reason for him to even practice at all.
Before Crosby was injured January 5th against the Lightning, he was leading the league in scoring with 32 goals and 34 assists in just 41 games.
