Sid to take part in Pens camp; no contact allowed – NHL.com

PITTSBURGH — Sidney Crosby’s status for the start of training camp is the same as it was near the end of the Pittsburgh Penguins’ brief playoff run last spring: Cleared for practice but not for contact.

But any similarity between then and now for the Penguins’ captain appears to be merely coincidental.

Crosby, out since Jan. 6 with a concussion that affected his vestibular system — the part of the brain that allows an individual to stand upright, maintain balance and move through space — will be pushed starting Saturday to a much greater extent than he was when he initially returned to practice March 31. Those workouts were cut short during the Penguins’ first-round playoff loss to Tampa Bay.
