Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby does not need surgery on his injured wrist.

Crosby dealt with a wrist injury during the playoffs, and a report out of Pittsburgh last week indicated he needed surgery to fix the issue in time for training camp.

But Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford released a statement Tuesday, saying that “after seeking additional medical advice, doctors have decided not to perform surgery on Sidney Crosby’s wrist,” adding that he will continue to receive treatment and be evaluated as he prepares for camp.

The Penguins forward was limited to just one goal and eight assists in 13 playoff games before being eliminated by the New York Rangers in the second round.

Crosby captured the NHL scoring title this past season and was named the NHL MVP at the season ending awards ceremony.
