Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Voted player to win one game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby beat out Connor McDavid in the NHLPA poll, as the one player his peers would want on their team to win one game.

Additionally, Crosby was also voted as the most complete player. After returning from core muscle surgery, the world-class center racked up 30 points in 24 games and was on pace to reach the 50-point mark for the eighth straight season. If the NHL returns this year, the Nova Scotia native figures to continue providing top-end fantasy value.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Game action suspended indefinitely
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby and the Penguins learned Thursday the NHL announced that the 2019-20 season has been suspended until further notice due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In a statement released Thursday, commissioner Gary Bettman said "In light of ongoing developments resulting from the coronavirus, and after consulting with medical experts and convening a conference call of the Board of Governors, the National Hockey League is announcing today that it will pause the 2019-20 season beginning with tonight's games." Bettman went on to say "Our goal is to resume play as soon as it is appropriate and prudent so that we will be able to complete the season and award the Stanley Cup. Until then, we thank NHL fans for your patience and hope you stay healthy."

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Three points including GWG
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby scored the game-winning goal and added two assists, one on the power play, in Tuesday's 7-3 win over the Senators.

His second-period tally was his 14th goal of the season, four of which have been game-winners. Crosby had only one point (a goal) in his prior six games with a minus-8 rating, but Tuesday's date with the woeful Sens appears to have snapped the 32-year-old out of his funk.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Four-point night against Leafs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby scored a power-play goal and added three assists, two of them also with the man advantage, in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Maple Leafs.

That's now three straight multi-point efforts for Crosby to extend his scoring streak to five games. The 32-year-old is on another massive tear, piling up seven goals and 23 points in the last 13 contests. Despite his inability to stay healthy this season he's up to 40 points (12 goals, 28 helpers) in only 30 games.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Two points against Wings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby scored an even-strength goal and added a power-play assist in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Red Wings.

He set up Kris Letang for what proved to be the game-winner late in the first period, then lit the lamp himself in the second on a wicked one-timer that clanged in off the crossbar behind Jimmy Howard. Crosby has points in four straight games and 10 of 12 since returning to the lineup in mid-January, boosting him to 11 goals and 36 points through 29 games on the season.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Dishes three helpers in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby picked up three assists, one on the power play, in Friday's 4-1 win over the Canadiens.

All three goals Crosby helped set up came in the second period, with two being fired home by his new linemate Jason Zucker. Crosby has five goals and 17 points in 11 games since returning to action from core muscle surgery in mid-January, and as long as he can stay healthy, he seems headed for a big finish to the campaign.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Snags power-play assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby recorded an assist with the man advantage versus Tampa Bay on Tuesday.

Since returning from core muscle surgery, Crosby has racked up five goals and nine helpers in 10 outings. The world-class center could find points even easier to come by now that he will be flanked by Jason Zucker on the left. With a couple days of practice to build some chemistry, the pair will look to put up some points on the Habs on Friday.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Fires home OT winner Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby scored the game-winning goal and added two power-play assists in Friday's 4-3 overtime win over the Flyers.

The 32-year-old seemed refreshed after the All-Star break. Crosby has been flying since returning to the lineup from a groin injury in mid-January, racking up four goals and 11 points in his last six games.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Helps spark rally with two assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby dished out a pair of assists and had one shot on goal with four hits in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Bruins.

Crosby's three-game goal drought came to an end, but he still has points in four straight (three goals, five assists) since returning from injury Tuesday. He drew the primary helper on each of Pittsburgh's first two goals Sunday, helping the Penguins erase a 3-0 deficit. Crosby and the Pens will travel to Philadelphia on Tuesday before heading into the All-Star break.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Like he never missed time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby scored his seventh goal of the season in Thursday's 4-1 loss to Boston.

He scored just 24 seconds into the game on a seeing-eye slapper from the left circle. Sid has five points (two goals, three assists) in two games since his return from injury. Get him back in there if he's still on your bench. Crosby is as good as you get in the NHL right now.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Posts four points in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby recorded a goal and three assists with three shots in his return from a groin injury during a 7-3 victory over the Wild on Tuesday.

The Penguins captain was spectacular, looking completely healthy in his return. Crosby was dominant with the puck, especially behind the net, where he created some beautiful plays. It led to four points, including two on the power play. Crosby won't be able to record his sixth straight season with 80 points because he missed more than two months, but owners can expect him to average more than a point per game the rest of the season. He has six goals and 21 points in 18 games this season.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby (groin) will return to the lineup for Tuesday's matchup with Minnesota.

Crosby has been sidelined since Nov. 9 while recovering from core muscle surgery, but he's been skating with his teammates for the last two weeks, so he shouldn't have any limitations against the Wild. The 32-year-old pivot, who picked up 17 points in 17 games before going under the knife, will skate on Pittsburgh's first line and top power-play unit Thursday.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Still sidelined Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Mike Sullivan said that Crosby (groin) won't suit up in Sunday's game against Arizona, Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Crosby will be missing another contest while dealing with the groin issue but appears close to a return. The superstar will likely get another chance to suit up in Tuesday's game against the Wild. He has 17 points in 17 games this year.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Not returning Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby (groin) did not skate Friday and will remain out against the Avalanche, Josh Getzoff of PensTV reports.

Crosby wasn't feeling well, but the missed practice day shouldn't affect his recovery timeline too much. Crosby will look to get into a practice prior to Sunday's game against the Coyotes. Once the superstar can get into a full practice, it should be more clear when he'll be able to enter the lineup. He'll need to be activated from injured reserve prior to making his return.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Won't play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby (groin), as expected, will not be available versus the Golden Knights on Tuesday, Sam Kasan of Pens Inside Scoop reports.

Crosby skated with his teammates Tuesday in a regular jersey but did not take part in line rushes. Pittsburgh will have two practice sessions before Friday's matchup with Colorado, which will be good opportunities for the world-class center to return to full participation. Where coach Mike Sullivan wants to insert Crosby into the lineup once cleared to play should become evident over the next few practice sessions.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Set to travel with team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby (groin) will reportedly join Pittsburgh for its upcoming three-game road trip, per Rob Rossi of The Athletic.

While there has been no word on when Crosby might get back on the ice, the Penguins will have a few practice days mixed in with this trip, which should allow the world-class center to get on the ice with his teammates. Tuesday's matchup with Vegas seems a bit too soon, though the Cole Harbour native hasn't officially been ruled out, but a return for Crosby against either Colorado or Arizona on Friday or Sunday, respectively, could be in the cards. How coach Mike Sullivan shuffles up the lines with Crosby in the mix figures to be a fluid situation and could change on a game-to-game or even period-to-period basis.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Ruled out next two games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby (groin) skated with the team Friday, including ditching his non-contact jersey to practice with the No. 1 power-play unit, but he won't be available versus Montreal or Florida on Saturday and Sunday, respectively, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.

Despite the fact that Crosby was able to get on the ice with his teammates, he remains out indefinitely at this point and hasn't been officially cleared for contact. The team will need to continue to lean heavily on Evgeni Malkin during Crosby's absence and will likely need to go out and try to get a scoring winger prior to the trade deadline. With Jake Guentzel (shoulder) unavailable to play on Crosby's line, it's not exactly clear who might get to play with Sid once he is given the all-clear, though Dominik Kahun and Patric Hornqvist could both be options.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Won't play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby (groin) will not return ahead of Thursday's matchup with San Jose, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.

Crosby joined the team on the ice Tuesday as he continues to work his way back from core muscle surgery. The world-class center remains without a specific recovery timeline, which raises doubts for his availability for Saturday and Sunday's back-to-back versus Montreal and Florida, respectively. After losing Jake Guentzel (shoulder) for the remainder of the 2019-20 campaign, Pittsburgh could certainly use some good news on the injury front.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Close to practicing again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Jim Rutherford said Monday that Crosby (sports hernia) should be ready to resume practicing with the Penguins soon after the team's Christmas break, Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. "Everybody recognizes, to say the obvious, what he does for our team on and off the ice," Rutherford said. "We're really looking forward to getting him back."

After undergoing surgery Nov. 14 to address a sports hernia, Crosby was cleared to resume skating in an individual setting two weeks ago, and he now appears poised to take the next step forward in his recovery process. Even if Crosby practices Thursday, it's unlikely the Penguins would clear him to play either end of their Friday/Saturday home-and-away set with the Predators, so next week probably represents the most realistic target date for the star center's return to game action. The Penguins have thus far survived without their captain, going 11-5-3 in his absence.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Still no clear timeline
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby (groin) has been skating for the past six days but doesn't have a definitive target for return.

Crosby was expected to be out until late December after undergoing surgery to repair a core muscle injury. It's a good sign that he's on the ice already, but there's no evidence of a possible early return to the lineup. Evgeni Malkin will continue working as the No. 1 center in Crosby's stead.
