According to reports, Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby is to have arthroscopic surgery on right wrist. This surgery will not make him miss any of the upcoming season, but will it affect his performance at all? With the recent team refashion, this season is highly anticipated by critics and fans. Sidney Crosby has all of the weight put on his shoulders, seeing as the captain had a disappointing performance in the playoffs. He racked up a total of 9 points (only 1 goal), after leading the league in points. At the NHL Awards he took home the Ted Lindsay Award for the third time in his career, and the Art Ross Trophy for the second time.

During the season, and even after, Crosby never let on his troubles with his wrist. It was not even reported until Wednesday, when it was said that it is not known how or even when the injury occurred. Surgery is said to be fairly non-invasive, but he will not be able to “play the same way”. We’ll see what this means when it comes to October and the spotlight is shining brightly on #87.
