PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby's return to the ice will have to wait a little longer. The team placed the former MVP on the injured list Monday, meaning he'll have to miss at least the first week of the season. Crosby is continuing to recover from concussion-like symptoms sustained last January. He has been skating with the Penguins since training camp opened but has not yet been cleared for contact. The Penguins open the season on Thursday at Vancouver. Under the rules the earliest Crosby could be activated is Oct. 13, when Pittsburgh hosts Washington.
