Injury Report: Evgeni Malkin out for 6-8 weeks

Pittsburgh Penguin’s forward Evgeni Malkin has been sidelined for the next 6-8 weeks with an undisclosed upper body injury.

Malkin left the game on Friday night against the Columbus Blue Jackets in the second period after a collision with Dalton Prout. The Penguins went on to win the matchup 3-2 but Malkin headed back to Pittsburgh while the team continued to New York according to Coach Mike Sullivan.

This injury will likely linger into the playoffs, with the Penguins currently occupying the top wild card spot.
