Penguins captain Sidney Crosby won’t make his preseason debut Saturday when Pittsburgh hosts the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Crosby, who has missed the team’s first three preseason games due to an undisclosed injury, will miss the game due to the death of his grandmother.

The club announced Saturday that Crosby has travelled back to Nova Scotia to be with his family.

Forward Andrew Ebbett is expected to take Crosby’s spot in the lineup.
