PITTSBURGH (AP) Pittsburgh Penguins forwards Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin will be held out of the start of training camp as a precaution with what the team described as minor injuries.
First-year coach Mike Johnston said both players were injured in the lead-up to camp, which begins Friday.
Neither injury is considered long term. Johnston added Crosby's issue is not related to a wrist injury that hindered him late last season and into the Stanley Cup playoffs.
