Kunitz (lower-body) will be a game-time decision on Tuesday.
Kunitz has missed the last three games with a lower-body injury, but he was on the ice for Monday’s practice and will be a game-time decision on Tuesday. Monitor Kunitz’s status during the morning skate, but we likely won’t know his official status until closer to game-time.
Kunitz (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision on Saturday.
Kunitz left Thursday’s game after a collision with Claude Giroux and missed Friday’s practice, so his status for Saturday’s game is unclear. Beau Bennett skated in Kunitz’s spot in practice, but it remains to be seen if he will actually return and play there on Saturday.
The Penguins have activated Chris Kunitz (foot) from IR.
According to the Penguins website roster, Kunitz has been activated from IR and Paul Martin has been moved to IR. His activation suggests that Kunitz could return to the lineup tonight vs. the Panthers. He was in the morning skate, but there was no announcement whether he would return or not. Consider him a game-time decision.
Kunitz (foot) is on the ice for the Penguins morning skate.
Kunitz has been skating for several days now, but has yet to return the the lineup. They could use him back with all the injuries the Pens are battling through. Monitor his status following the morning skate.
Kunitz was on the ice for the Penguins morning skate, but is not quite ready to return to the lineup tonight vs. the Avalanche. He is definitely getting close, so monitor his status leading up to Saturday’s game vs. the Panthers.
Kunitz (foot) skated on Wednesday; will not play on Thursday.
Kunitz took part in Penguins practice on Wednesday, but did not take any contact and is not quite ready to return to the lineup. Despite not being available for tomorrow’s game, it sounds like Kunitz is close to being back, which would be a huge boost for a Penguins team who is decimated by injury and mumps right now.
The Penguins have placed Chris Kunitz (foot) on injured reserve.
Kunitz will miss his third straight game on Saturday but they had to place him on IR in order for the newly acquired Rob Klinkhammer to be added to the roster. Kunitz however, was reportedly seen without a walking boot on Friday, so make of that what you will.
Kunitz will miss a couple of weeks with a fracture in his foot.
Kunitz must have suffered the fracture in Saturday’s loss to the Hurricanes. He played just 15:26 which suggests he may have left the game early. The Penguins are dealing with a lot of injuries right now, so losing Kunitz for a couple of weeks certainly is not going to help their offence. Jayson Megna filled in on the second line tonight, but expect someone to be recalled from the AHL as well.
