Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby flew to California to meet with a neurological spine specialist.
Crosby will meet with Dr. Robert S. Bray after he was examined extensively by Dr. Ted Carrick, a chiropractic neurology specialist who treated him in the summer.
"Sidney is meeting with some of the top specialists in the country as he continues his recovery," Penguins general manager Ray Shero said in a statement.Crosby recent began skating with the team, although no timetable has been established for his return to game action.
Plagued by lingering concussion symptoms, the 2007 NHL MVP has not played since Dec. 5.
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 2011.
