PITTSBURGH – Penguins star Sidney Crosby is to have anthroscopic surgery on his right wrist to repair an injury, according to a report in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Crosby managed one goal and eight assists in the Pens’ 2014 playoff run, which ended in a series loss to the New York Rangers as the team blew a 3-1 series lead. Six of the assists came in the series against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The source told the Post-Gazette that Crosby opted for surgery after therapy failed to correct the problem.

Crosby earned the Hart Trophy, Art Ross Trophy and the Ted Lindsay Award during the NHL’s award ceremony in Las Vegas in June.

The NHL MVP is expected to be ready to play when the 2014-15 season opens in October.
