PITTSBURGH, Pa. - 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 the Penguins announced Tuesday on Twitter 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.

Crosby had just one goal and eight assists in 13 playoff games. The Penguins were eliminated in the second round by the New York Rangers.
