The agent for Sidney Crosby dismissed rumors that the Pittsburgh Penguins superstar center's season or career could be over.
"Sidney is doing very well, he’s training, he’s going in the right direction," agent Pat Brisson told ESPN.com. "The idea of retiring or shutting him down is not even in our vocabulary. Far from that."

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.

Yahoo! Sports NHL columnist Nick Cotsonika marked a dubious anniversary on Thursday: One year to the day that Sidney Crosby was hit from behind by Victor Hedman.
The ensuing concussion recovery kept the Pittsburgh Penguins captain out through the end of last season until Nov. 21 of this season. Crosby returned with a 4-point night. He had 12 points in eight games. He hasn't played...
PHT: What will Sidney Crosby's next contract in Pittsburgh look like? This is going to be a thorny question.
With Pittsburgh Penguins’ superstar Sidney Crosby struggling to get healthy, the National Hockey League needs a player like Washington Capitals’ forward Alex Ovechkin to be better now more than ever.

As it was explained to me minutes before I started typing up this piece (by no other than our own Todd Cordell): Contrary to a misguided belief that the NHLPA flat out rejected the league’s new realignment plan and playoff format for the 2012-2013 NHL season, the NHL Board of Governors actually imposed a deadline for the NHLPA to submit a decision...
