From Evgeni Malkin on Twitter.
Before everyone gets all excited, what Malkin probably means is that the team had a practice with contact and Sidney Crosby was there. From the pics on Penguins.NHL.com, Crosby is still wearing a white non-contact helmet.
Sidney Crosby is not cleared for contact, but how hilarious would it be if the news broke via an Evgeni Malkin Tweet?

EDIT 2: Malkin has now Tweeted this:
