NHL Lockout: Could Sidney Crosby Play In KHL?

With the NHL currently locking out the players, it's interesting to think about what the stars of the game will do with all of their free time.

One such man is Sidney Crosby, who reportedly isn't opposed to playing in the KHL, perhaps alongside teammate Evgeni Malkin, according to Yahoo! Sports.

Metallurg Magnitogorsk of the KHL has already signed Malkin and ex-Penguin Sergei Gonchar. The franchise certainly wouldn't mind the addition of Crosby, who has stated he would be open to playing overseas if the NHL was missing games.

The Penguins' brass might have some trepidation with the idea, considering Crosby's vast concussion history. However, they don't have a say in the matter with the CBA resolution seemingly running in place.

On the injury front, Crosby did recently say he's feeling great once again.

"It's been really good," he said. "Nothing. I've been feeling 100 percent. It feels good to not have to think about that, and to work as hard as you want. It's been really good."

The NHL is entering the second day of its lockout as of Monday morning.
