News: After seeking medical advice, it was determined that Crosby (wrist) will not require surgery. Impact: Last week, the team acknowledged Crosby is dealing with a wrist issue, but after meeting with a medical team, it's been determined that surgery will not be necessary. Crosby will continue to be treated and evaluated regularly leading up to training camp. The Penguins are hoping noninvasive treatment will be sufficient, but if he doesn't show significant progress, it's still possible that he could require surgery down the road.(RotoWire, )
