9/8/2021 Sidney Crosby, Pit, C
Crosby will miss the start of the regular season after undergoing wrist surgery.

Analysis: General manager Ron Hextall said the surgery was necessary to address a lingering issue and that Crosby would be out a minimum of six weeks. The Penguins open the 2021-22 season on the road against two-time defending Stanley Cup champions Tampa Bay on Oct. 12. The door for Crosby's possible routine would likely open around Oct. 20 at the earliest. The 34-year-old Crosby missed one game during the shortened 2020-21 season, finishing with 24 goals and 38 assists.
