Pittsburgh Penguins Captain Sidney Crosby taking all possible steps to ensure recovery –NHL Update
Sidney Crosby has made leaps and bounds in his short career so far by even becoming known to be the National Hockey League’s (NHL) best player in regards his sharp shooting skills and an eye for making plays like no other.
His recent concussion problems have seriously hampered his performance over the last season, which also resulted in him missing the 2011 playoffs, but in the recent days, Crosby has been taking all possible steps to ensure that he will fully recover and
be ready for next season.
It has not been easy for his friends and family, especially his fans to see him out like this, but Crosby has not failed to recognise that.

It was due to two back-to-back head shots during matchups in January, that caused a severe concussion in the player and seriously has hampered his performance ever since. At one point, there was uncertainty that he might not be able to return at all, which
would easily be one of the greatest losses to the league.
Concussions are a different problem altogether because unlike shoulder or knee injuries which have a set recover period and can be treated, concussions require ample time to rest and recover and could show reoccurring signs at any moment.
"We always knew this was going to be a progressive recovery – based on how he felt," said Pat Brisson, Crosby's agent. "With a concussion, there is not a finite recovery period like with a shoulder injury or a knee injury. That's why we've never even set
a specific goal for a return date”.
Crosby’s best season was his second with Pittsburgh as he scored an impressive 120 points (36 goals, 84 assists) in 79 games. Since then, he has not been able to either meet or exceed his set standard, but looks forward to doing so once he returns on the
