Crosby’s Father Denies Retirement Report

via Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

Is Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby considering retirement?

Veteran sports radio Bob McCown of the Fan590 in Toronto made waves Friday when reported he had heard Crosby’s family was trying to convince him to retire for fear of risking more injury.

Not true, said the superstar player’s father.

“Not at all,” Troy Crosby, from his Halifax, Nova Scotia, home, told ESPN. “We’re just trying to get him healthy again. However long that takes, that’s how long it’s going to take.”

Crosby’s agent Pat Brisson also refuted the report.

As for Crosby’s status?

“He’s progressing,” said Brisson. “But there is no timetable.”
