The Pittsburgh Penguins' star Sidney Crosby is back on the ice, skating with conditioning coach Mike Kadar. Recovering from surgery on his jaw, Crosby was in full gear and wearing a plastic shield protecting his jaw. While there's still no timetable for his return, there are speculations that he could be playing again before the end of regular season.

Crosby spent about 35 minutes practicing on the ice, his first time skating since his jaw was fractured by a puck 16 days ago.

There's no indication when Crosby will return to practice or rejoin the lineup, and he isn't expected to join the Penguins in practice today.

However, just two days ago there was no timetable for Crosby to skate again. He did some traveling with the team after he was cleared to fly, and he says he's feeling better--all good indications that he is recovering quickly and could rejoin the team soon.

DATER: Penguins land at No. 2 on Power Rankings
