Penguins' Sidney Crosby: OT winner caps big night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby registered a goal and two assists with three shots Tuesday in a 5-4 overtime win over the Capitals. He also dominated in the faceoff circle with 16 wins on 19 attempts (84.2 percent).

Crosby scooped up a rebound on the doorstep and outwaited Washington netminder Vitek Vanecek to deliver the overtime win just 71 seconds into the extra session. He also assisted on power-play goals by Jake Guentzel and Evgeni Malkin in the second period. The beat goes on for the 33-year-old superstar, who has three goals and five points through the first four games of the season.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Takes ice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby (wrist) skated without limitations at Monday's practice, Seth Rorabaugh of TribLive.com reports.

The superstar pivot underwent arthroscopic wrist surgery back in September. He's made a full recovery and is preparing for his 16th NHL season. Injuries held Crosby to just 41 regular-season games last year, but he still managed to produce 16 goals and 31 assists.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Undergoes wrist procedure
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Penguins announced Tuesday that Crosby underwent arthroscopic surgery on his wrist. He's expected to make a full recovery in 3-to-4 weeks.

Considering Crosby had never previously gone under the knife, it's no doubt been an interesting 2019-20 season for the world-class winger, who also underwent core muscle surgery in November. Fortunately for Pens fans, training camps for the upcoming league year are not expected to start until November at the earliest, which gives Crosby plenty of time to recover. Heading into 2020-21, fantasy players should expect the recently re-acquired Kasperi Kapanen to get an extended look playing on the top line with Crosby and Jake Guentzel, an assignment that should significantly boost Kapanen's value and provide Crosby with another speedy winger on his left flank.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Point streak at three games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby notched a power-play assist in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Canadiens in Game 3.

Crosby has notched a point in all three games in the series (two goals, one helper). The 32-year-old superstar will look to keep the streak going in a must-win Game 4 on Friday.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Opens scoring in Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby tallied a goal on four shots in Monday's 3-1 win over the Canadiens in Game 2.

Crosby tallied at 4:25 of the first period, and that would be the only goal for over 50 minutes until Jason Zucker added insurance for the Penguins late in the third. The 32-year-old Crosby has two goals, nine shots and a plus-2 rating through the first two games of the playoffs.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Scores goal Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby scored a goal on five shots in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Habs.

Crosby racked up plenty of shots and logged 7:48 of ice time with the man advantage. The Pens went just 1-of-7 on the power play and will need to start producing if they want to dig themselves out of their 1-0 series deficit. While his salary will no doubt be near the top of Monday's DFS slate, the world-class center figures to remain a high-end fantasy target.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: In action Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby (undisclosed) will suit up for Tuesday's exhibition game versus the Flyers.

Crosby's return will give the coaching staff its first glimpse of the world-class center playing alongside Jake Guentzel and Conor Sheary for the first time since Sheary was traded to the Sabres. In addition to centering the top line, Crosby will no doubt reclaim his place on the No. 1 power-play unit.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Game-time call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's exhibition matchup with Philadelphia, Michelle Crechiolo of Pens Inside Scoop reports.

Crosby was dealing with an undisclosed issue that kept him out of the club's previous two scrimmages. While Tuesday's clash won't mean anything in terms of postseason outcome, coach Mike Sullivan is no doubt eager to see how Crosby gels with Jake Guentzel and Conor Sheary as the 'Sid and the Kids' line reunites for the first time since the Stanley Cup-winning 2016-17 campaign.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Status for exhibition in doubt
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby could miss the Penguins' exhibition clash with Philadelphia on Tuesday after coach Mike Sullivan told reporters, "We'll make that decision tomorrow," Mike DeFabo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Crosby continues to practice with the team, so it doesn't seem like he is in danger of missing any real game action. Still, fantasy players will no doubt want to see how the reunited "Sid and the Kids" line meshes. The elite center should no doubt be a top fantasy target in all formats heading into the play-in series versus Montreal.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Rejoins practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby (undisclosed) was back on the ice for Friday's practice session.

Crosby left the team's first scrimmage early and sat out Thursday but was able to rejoin the main group Friday. With his injury hopefully behind him, the world-class center should provide elite value in both playoff pools and DFS contests, especially against a Habs squad that is not expected to put up much competition.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Out of scrimmage again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby (undisclosed) will not participate in Thursday's scrimmage, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.

The coaching staff has little incentive to push Crosby into much action prior to the playoffs as it looks to keep the star pivot healthy. The fact that he skated Wednesday is a sign of progress, which will need to continue over the next week as the Penguins gear up for the resumption of the season Aug. 1 versus the Canadiens.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Skates prior to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby (undisclosed) skated ahead of Wednesday's practice session.

Crosby took a twirl on the ice Wednesday but didn't join his teammates for the full practice portion. Still, it's a good sign for the Pens faithful that Crosby was at least healthy enough to skate. The team will no doubt continue to be cautious with its world-class center, though at this point it seems unlikely he will miss the Aug. 1 clash with Montreal.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Won't scrimmage Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby (undisclosed) will not take part in Monday's intra-squad scrimmage, Michelle Crechiolo of Pens Inside Scoop reports.

Crosby was forced out of Saturday's scrimmage with an undisclosed issue and will now be sidelined again Monday. If the world-class center's issue continues to linger, it could bring his status for the play-in series matchup with Montreal into doubt and will force the team to lean heavily on Evgeni Malkin.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Exits scrimmage early
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby (undisclosed) exited Saturday's intrasquad scrimmage early.

Crosby didn't appear to suffer an injury during the scrimmage, so his departure was likely precautionary, but per the NHL's new injury update policy, coach Mike Sullivan was unable to provide an update on the Penguins' captain's status following Saturday's on-ice session. Another update on the 32-year-old pivot should surface once he's able to resume practicing.

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.
