BOCA RATON, Fla. -- As Penguins center Sidney Crosby was taking the ice Monday as a step in his long recovery from a concussion, teammate Kris Letang was being tested for the same injury.
Letang took a leveling shot to the chin from Edmonton's Gilbert Brule in a 5-1 win Sunday. General manager Ray Shero confirmed Wednesday at the league GM meetings, that the day after that hit, Letang took a neurological test to be compared with an earlier baseline test. He passed and then played in a 5-1 win Tuesday at Ottawa.
The NHL has a protocol for players suspected of having a concussion, and an even more rigorous version of that protocol takes effect this week.
Crosby, who has been out since Jan. 6, skated Monday and Tuesday. He did not skate Wednesday, but that might have been because the team was given the day off.
A team official had no information about whether Crosby had experienced any concussion-related symptoms after his session Tuesday and suggested that Crosby wouldn't necessarily skate Wednesday, regardless of how his time on the ice went.
