Pittsburgh Penguins’ captain Sidney Crosby is still working out in Nova Scotia, but neither he nor the Penguins are saying whether he is skating at a pace consistent with a player about to report to training camp.

PITTSBURGH — Doctors say that Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby is recovering but there is no timeline for a return to action.
Several concussion experts spoke at a Penguins news conference to update Crosby’s health status.
Dr. Michael Collins says of Crosby’s recovery: “It is approaching normal limits. It is not there yet.”
Crosby took part in his normal off-season workout program but his headaches returned when he got to 90 per cent exertion in his workouts.
Crosby says it’s been a “tough road” but he feels good mentally and never considered retirement.
Training camp opens Sept. 16 and Pittsburgh plays its first regular-season game Oct. 6.
