He misses the rest of the 2010-11 season and playoffs and the first 20 games of the 2011-12 season with concussion symptoms.

Dec. 5, 2011 — After only eight games back from his concussion, Crosby collides with Boston’s David Krejci. He misses the next 40 games with concussion symptoms and a neck injury.

March 30, 2013 — Crosby misses the final 12 games of the regular season after his jaw is broken from a slapshot by teammate Brooks Orpik in a game against the New York Islanders.

Dec. 12, 2014 — Crosby is diagnosed with the mumps and misses three games.
