Having missed the better part of two seasons during the prime years of his career about a decade ago due to chronic concussion woes, Sidney Crosby has no problem with safety.
Of the 896 players who have suited up for at least one NHL game this season, there probably isn’t a bigger advocate for protecting the well-being of anyone who steps on the ice than Crosby.
And even if he is generally soft-spoken in nature, not one of the other 895 has a louder voice when it comes to league matters.
On Tuesday, following his team’s 2-1 home loss to the Boston Bruins, Crosby cleared his throat.
Expressing confusion, the Penguins captain called for more clarity from the NHL in the aftermath of a boarding major in the second period against teammate Brandon Tanev.
