No one wants to be the guy who re-injures Sidney Crosby in practice, but for the Penguins start to get ready, some teammate will need to knock him around a bit.

A few days after being teased with the possibility, the Penguins and their fans can celebrate a big step: Sidney Crosby participated in his first full contact practice since January today. This post includes a small update on Evgeni Malkin, too.

Like many other people in the hockey world, Jeremy Roenick is tired of all the Sidney Crosby concussion updates.
Oct 12, 2011, 12:15 AM EDT
You’d think that without Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin the Penguins might wilt. Did you not learn anything from last season?
Oct 11, 2011, 5:39 PM EDT
Penguins fans must temper their excitement today, as Sidney Crosby said that he didn’t meet with his team of doctors to gain clearance for contact today. This doesn’t mean it’s a setback, but it’s not a big step forward, either.
Oct 11, 2011, 12:05 PM EDT
The good news for the Penguins is that Sidney Crosby might make a step in the right direction today. The bad news is that Evgeni Malkin will miss a second straight game with a “lower body injury.”

Sidney Crosby will reportedly meet with his team of doctors this morning with the goal of being cleared for contact. If that happens, he’ll be on the fast track to getting back into NHL games.

Sidney Crosby starts the year on injured reserve for the Penguins, but it’s not long-term injured reserve. Fire up the speculation machine!
Oct 2, 2011, 3:13 PM EDT
The real Evgeni Malkin was missing the last two seasons thanks to nagging injuries. Now? He’s motivated, looks dominating, and ready to win the Cup again.

As expected, Sidney Crosby ruled himself out of the Penguins’ season opener on Thursday, Oct. 6.

Sidney Crosby will join the Penguins as they travel to Western Canada to start the regular season. Just don’t expect to see him on the ice once the games start…
Sep 29, 2011, 3:15 PM EDT
If you thought the Penguins were good already, just wait until you see them with their two best players back on the ice.
Sep 27, 2011, 9:00 PM EDT
The Penguins’ schedule is pretty balanced and manageable, but they could go on a late season tear, especially in their final 11 games.

Fire up your relocation theories, the Kings and Penguins game in Kansas City is a sellout. So who wants to move to the midwest?

He’s still wearing his white “no contact” helmet, but Sidney Crosby took another step in the right direction by participating in a “controlled scrimmage” on Sunday.
Sep 24, 2011, 11:15 PM EDT
It’s a small sample size of mostly irrelevant games, but Evgeni Malkin’s impressive preseason is becoming a source of genuine excitement in hockey circles. PHT ponders his chances of returning to an elite level after two rough seasons.
Sep 17, 2011, 3:16 PM EDT
While he stood out with his white no contact helmet, Sidney Crosby also stood out for how hard he worked during the first day of training camp.
Sep 16, 2011, 10:55 AM EDT
It’s a small step, but a big one nonetheless for Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby as he’s been cleared to practice without contact.
Sep 11, 2011, 3:15 PM EDT
Eric Tangradi is a power forward with high hopes and a bright future. Can he make the leap for the Penguins this season?
