Sidney Crosby returned to the ice Monday morning, and he was joined by a couple of important Penguins teammates, too.

Crosby (broken jaw) joined winger James Neal (concussion) and defenseman Paul Martin (broken hand) for individual on-ice workouts at Consol Energy Center.

Crosby and Neal donned full gear, with Crosby wearing a plastic shield covering his lower face. Martin was dressed in only a track suit.

The three injured players took the ice just after 9:30 a.m. The Penguins are scheduled to practice at 11 a.m.

Crosby and Martin each had undergone surgery. They joined the Penguins on a road trip last week.

Neal was not with the club on that trip.

Crosby was the NHL's scoring leader at the time of his injury on March 30. Martin was second among team defensemen in points and ice time when he was injured on March 28. Neal was second on the team in goals at the time of his injury April 5.
