Crosby, 24, made a brief comeback in late November from a concussion that forced him to miss 68 consecutive games from 2010-11. The star center was cleared for contact Oct. 13 and in his first game back against the New York Islanders, the 24-year-old tallied two goals and two assists. After just eight games, however, Crosby was put back on the injured reserve with concussion-like symptoms.
