VANCOUVER -- Centre Sidney Crosby practiced with Pittsburgh Penguins in Vancouver today but doesn't know when he will be able to return to the NHL.

Crosby hasn't played in the league since suffering a concussion on January 5.

He still hasn't been cleared for contact in practice but says it feels good to be back skating with his teammates.

The Penguins open the NHL season tomorrow night against the Vancouver Canucks.

Crosby said he has some good memories of Rogers Arena.

It's the building he scored the winning goal in overtime in Canada's gold medal victory over the U.S. at the 2010 Winter Olympics.
