There are but a handful of hockey players who can really relate to Sidney Crosby and what he was before he suffered his career-threatening concussion and what he’s been through in the 11 months since.
Already the best in the game, he seemed poised to join the hockey’s pantheon - Gretzky, Lemieux, Orr and Howe. Monday night in Pittsburgh the quest begins anew.
But there are millions of hockey parents who can relate to Troy Crosby in the months since his son was sidelined and maybe especially in the anxious weeks since he began inching ever closer to playing again.
“When the day comes, as a parent I’m just going to be happy he’s happy he’s back doing something he loves to do,” the elder Crosby said recently as his son was in the final stages of his re-entry into the NHL fray. “And as a hockey parent I’ll be happy because I miss watching him.”
