Sidney Crosby skated for nearly a half hour on Friday, marking his return to the ice for the first time in more than a month.
Pittsburgh Penguins coach Dan Byslma used the team's Twitter account earlier in the week to announce that Crosby would join the team on its road trip. No timetable has been set for his return to game action, however.
Plagued by lingering concussion symptoms, the 2007 NHL MVP has not played since Dec. 5.
The Penguins placed Crosby on injured reserve Dec. 17 after ruling him out indefinitely five days earlier.
Crosby had been sidelined for 10 1/2 months before making a dramatic return to the lineup on Nov. 21, scoring two goals and adding two assists versus the New York Islanders.
The 24-year-old Nova Scotia native collected two goals and 10 assists in eight contests since returning from his original injury in January.
