Sidney Crosby may be going under the knife.

According to a source with The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the Penguins captain is set to have arthroscopic surgery on his right wrist within the week.

The source added to the Post-Gazette that the surgery "is not major," but is set to repair damage that impeded his postseason performance.

The surgery is not expected to force Crosby to miss any time in the upcoming season.

Crosby scored one goal and added eight assists in 13 playoff games with the Penguins, who were eliminated in Round 2 by the New York Rangers.

The 26-year-old was awarded the Hart Trophy as the NHL's most valuable player in 2013-14.
