Crosby Out Indefinitely After Surgery
Sidney Crosbys unfortunate incident with a Brooks Orpik shot to his face is going to have him on the shelf for a while.
The Penguins announced Crosby would be out indefinitely after having surgery for a broken jaw following yesterdays puck in the face. Sid the Kid spent the night in the hospital after reportedly having oral surgery when Orpiks deflected slap shot hit him in the mouth, knocking out some teeth.
If theres a positive out of this so far its that there has been no talk of a possible concussion, but the Penguins will update Crosbys condition later this week.
Losing Crosby at all is no small thing, even for a star-studded lineup like Pittsburgh has. Hes leading the league in points with 56, 10 more than the next best scorer in the league, Steven Stamkos of Tampa Bay. Good thing for the Pens that theyve loaded up on veteran talent, huh?
