No Sidney Crosby at the World Championships

So, according to, there will be no Sidney Crosby at the World Championships in Moscow :(

NHL scoring champion Sidney Crosby will not play for Team Canada at the upcoming IIHF world hockey championship because of a broken left foot.

The Pittsburgh Penguins star revealed Saturday that he played the final 2½ weeks of the regular season and the playoffs with the injury.

Crosby was expected to join Team Canada for the second year in a row after Pittsburgh was eliminated by Ottawa in the first round of the playoffs.

He believes he broke a bone in the foot while blocking a shot March 16 against Montreal, but he didn't miss any games. Crosby had five goals and nine assists in his final 11 regular season games and three goals and two assists in five playoff games.

"The first two weeks were pretty sore," Crosby said as the Penguins players assembled Saturday before breaking for the summer. "After a couple of weeks, it starts to heal and it got a little better after that. It just needs time. . After a couple of weeks, it didn't have any effect."
