Penguins coach Johnston: Crosby will make preseason debut Saturday vs. Blue Jackets

Charles LeClaire / USA TODAY Sports

Pittsburgh Penguins head coach Mike Johnston confirmed Friday that Sidney Crosby will make his preseason debut against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday.

The reigning Hart Trophy recipient was held out at the start of training camp for precautionary reasons after suffering a minor injury in an informal skate. It was unrelated to the wrist ailment that plagued him last season.

Crosby is practicing with the Penguins and will join fellow returnee Chris Kunitz in the lineup on Saturday.
