Sidney Crosby May Have A Sports Hernia Injury

from Rob Rossi of The Athletic,

Sidney Crosby is evaluating all treatment options for a sports hernia, multiple NHL and Penguins sources confirmed to The Athletic.

Crosby aggravated the sports hernia Saturday night at PPG Paints Arena, but sources say the Penguins captain has been dealing with the injury since training camp. He opted against surgery when the Penguins lost multiple forwards, including Evgeni Malkin, to various injuries early in October.

Crosby is now weighing the opinions of medical personnel whether he should undergo surgery, which would typically require a 4-6 week recovery, the sources said.
