Sidney Crosby broken jaw news is not good for the Pittsburgh Penguins. The broken jaw has Crosby out indefinitely, potentially crippling the team moving forward. According to a report from Sunday afternoon (March 31), the Penguins star had to go through surgery to repair the injury after being hit in the mouth by a puck.
The injury took place in a game on Saturday (March 30) against the New York Islanders and cost him more than an injury to the jaw. Crosby also lost several teeth during the incident, requiring him to go through some severe dental work.
This really looked like a season where Pittsburgh could race straight to the Stanley Cup as the team has enjoyed 15-straight win. The NHL record is just 17, so the team has a shot at breaking that mark within the next week. Crosby leads the league in points with 41 assists and 15 goals so far, which placed him 10 points ahead of the closest person (Steven Stamkos).
It’s unclear just how long this Sidney Crosby broken jaw will keep him away from the Pittsburgh Penguins. The team wasn’t really willing to put a timetable on his recovery, but it’s possible that he could be back on the ice in time for the playoffs. As for his long-term recovery, that might take a little longer.
