Pitts­burgh Pen­guins su­per­star Sid­ney Crosby has been di­ag­nosed with another con­cus­sion and there is no timetable for his re­turn.

Gen­eral man­ager Jim Ruther­ford made the an­nounce­ment Mon­day as the team pre­pared for its reg­u­lar-sea­son opener Thurs­day night at home against Wash­ing­ton.

Coach Mike Sul­li­van told re­porters that Crosby was con­cussed at prac­tice Fri­day and said there is no tim­ing for re­turn of the two-time Stan­ley Cup cham­pion and the reign­ing play­off MVP who led Team Canada to a World Cup of Hockey ti­tle two weeks ago.

Crosby sat out a pre­sea­son game Satur­day against Colum­bus be­cause he wasn’t feel­ing well and missed prac­tice Mon­day to un­dergo con­cus­sion test­ing. The team said Crosby’s sta­tus will be up­dated when more in­for­ma­tion be­comes avail­able.
