Sidney Crosby Loudly Announces His Return

The NHL's poster boy and arguably its best player returned to the ice on Monday night after a 10-month layoff due to the effects of concussions. On his third shift, Crosby scored. And it was pretty sick, a backhander to the near top corner.

The NHL’s poster boy and arguably its best player returned to the ice on Monday night after a 10-month layoff due to the effects of concussions. On his third shift, Crosby scored. And it was pretty sick, a backhander to the near top corner.

Since then, he stayed relatively quiet, with only a pair of assists and one more goal for a four-point night. Here’s the second one, kind of a lucky shot, but the work leading up to it was absolutely amazing.

 

All seriousness, I can’t stand the sight of this guy, and I reserve the right to complain about special treatment both real and imagined, yet I’m 100% glad he’s back on the ice. Great player, great for the game.
