David Steckel Still Answering Questions About Sidney Crosby's Concussion

It seems like ages ago when then-Washington Capitals forward David Steckel bumped into Sidney Crosby in the 2011 NHL Winter Classic, which began Crosby's many concussion problems that continue to hold him out of game action. Steckel now plays for the Toronto Maple Leafs, and because Crosby might be on the comeback trail, Mike Brophy of Sportsnet felt the need to catch up with Steckel.

The answers were predictable.

"It's the same question I answered when he was given clearance for body contact. I wish him all the best. I mean, it was unintentional and I hope he comes back sooner rather than later. I'm sure Sidney is as sick as I am of answering the same questions day in and day out as I am. There's not much more I can say about it. I am just reiterating what happened and how I feel about it. Obviously you don't like to see anybody out for that long so hopefully he's okay."

Get ready for a lot more of this in the coming days, everyone.
