Sidney Crosby Had Wrist Surgery, Out At Least Six Weeks

via the Pittsburgh Penguins,

Penguins captain Sidney Crosby underwent a successful wrist procedure today, it was announced by general manager Ron Hextall.

The procedure to Crosby's left wrist was performed by Dr. Robert Hotchkiss of New York, in collaboration with team physician, Dr. Dharmesh Vyas of UPMC.

The 34-year-old center will miss the start of training camp and is expected to be sidelined for a minimum of six weeks.

"This is not a new injury for Sid. It is something that he has played through for years," said Penguins general manager Ron Hextall. "After exhausting all minimally-invasive options and much discussion, it was decided that surgery was in his best interest."

I don’t think so, but I believe the issue may be carpal tunnel syndrome that was initially developed during those late night basement “coaching sessions”.  Think about it. BWAHAHAHA!!

Now they can sit him until the playoffs start, and save cap space.
