PITTSBURGH (AP) – Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby could make his season debut Tuesday night against Florida.
The two-time MVP and reigning Conn Smythe Trophy winner hasn’t played since sustaining a concussion in practice earlier this month. Crosby returned to practice on Monday and participated in Pittsburgh’s game-day skate on Tuesday morning.
Coach Mike Sullivan said it’s “likely” that Crosby will play. Crosby described himself as a “game time” decision.
The Penguins are off to a 3-2-1 start with Crosby out of the lineup.
Defenseman Kris Letang skated with the team on Tuesday, but wore a non-contact jersey and will miss his third straight game with an undisclosed injury.
