Sidney Crosby is still working to return from the concussion-like symptoms that have kept him out for the last seven weeks, and the latest update on the Pittsburgh Penguins star is a visit to Southern California to see a neurological spine specialist.
Crosby made the trip to Marina Del Rey yesterday to see Dr. Robert S. Bray, the team announced today. Bray is the founding director and CEO of the D.I.S.C. Sports and Spine Center, and he worked with the U.S. Olympic team at the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver.
"Sidney is meeting with some of the top specialists in the country as he continues his recovery," Penguins GM Ray Shero said. Crosby has played in just eight games this season, compiling two goals and 10 assists. He last appeared for the Pens on Dec. 5. The team has gone 10-9 in his absence.
