"I started to get some symptoms," said the young player considered to be the face of the NHL. "I [had] started to ramp things up a bit as far as working out and skating, and I got a little bit of symptoms. I had to take a step back."

Asked if that meant headaches, Mr. Crosby said, "Yeah, all that stuff that goes along with it."

Crosby will stay in Pittsburgh to begin the offseason so that he can continue to be evaluated by UPMC's Michael Collins. He is hopeful that he will be able to return for the beginning of next season.

The Penguins missed Crosby quite a lot - they performed very well without him in the regular season, but suffered in their playoff series as a result of a lack of production from their best offensive players.
