PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Penguins say captain Sidney Crosby doesn't need surgery on his injured wrist.
Crosby dealt with a wrist injury during the playoffs. The Penguins announced Tuesday on Twitter that "after seeking additional medical advice, doctors have decided not to perform surgery on Sidney Crosby's wrist."
The team says he'll keep receiving treatment and be evaluated ahead of training camp in September.
Crosby had just one goal and eight assists in 13 playoff games. The Penguins were eliminated in the second round by the New York Rangers.
