Sidney Crosby is scheduled to have arthroscopic surgery on his right wrist within the next few days to repair damage that a source said impeded his performance in the postseason.
Despite saying during and after the Stanley Cup playoffs that he was at full health, the Penguins center "did play with a terrible wrist," the source said Tuesday night.
So despite all the assurance that nothing was wrong with Crosby during the playoffs, the pending surgery suggests that that was not actually the case. It was said that he had hoped it would improve without surgery, but in the end was forced to go under the knife. However, the injury is said to be minor, and he should not miss any time at the start of the 2014-15 season.
We will keep you update as more news comes to light after his surgery is complete.
