Feb. 1 (UPI) — Pittsburgh Penguins centre Evgeni Malkin skipped Friday night’s activity from the Ottawa Senators with an higher-overall body harm.
“Ideal now he’s working day-to-working day with an higher-overall body harm,” Sullivan explained. “He will not participate in tonight or this weekend. We are hopeful that this is a limited-term matter and he’ll be back in our lineup before long.”
Pittsburgh ahead Matt Cullen took more than as alternate captain Friday in Malkin’s absence.
Malkin very last played Wednesday and experienced two assists from the Tampa Bay Lightning in a 4-2 victory. He joined Mario Lemieux (1,033), Sidney Crosby (741) and Jaromir Jagr (640) as the fourth participant in Penguins record to tally at least 600 assists.
The seven-time All-Star has 55 factors (14 goals, 41 assists) in 50 games this year. Malkin experienced 15 factors (two goals, 13 assists) in his very last 11 contests.
