The Pittsburgh Penguins announced yesterday that, after seeking additional medical advice, captain Sidney Crosby was forgoing surgery on his injured wrist in favor of “treatments.”

But according to Crosby’s agent, Pat Brisson, it’s no guarantee the treatment will work.

“If this treatment works, you avoid surgery and move on,” Pat Brisson told the Post-Gazette, the same Pittsburgh newspaper that reported last week that Crosby was scheduled for surgery. “If it doesn’t, he will have to go that [surgical] route.”

Brisson wouldn’t go into details about the treatment, other than to say it’s “a form of injection that has been proven to work, but sometimes it doesn’t work.”
