Pittsburgh Penguins star center Sidney Crosby missed most of last season after receiving hits to his head in back-to-back games. He was diagnosed with a concussion on January 5th and missed nearly 10 months of action before returning this season. Crosby played eight games before getting hurt again after taking another hit to the head. He has been out since December. Crosby reportedly was dissatisfied with the medical treatment he was receiving in Pittsburgh, so he traveled to Utah to see a specialist who discovered problems with his C1 and C2 vertebrae. Bob McCown of Sportsnet 590 The Fan said Crosby went to Utah to see the specialist at the advice of his friends Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen. It’s still uncertain what exactly is wrong with Crosby, but the team says it will not bring their star back until he is fully healed. Pittsburgh currently holds the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference and they’ve been led by Evgeni Malkin, who leads the NHL with 58 points.
