Malkin (leg) is back in the Penguins lineup today.
Malkin missed the last nine games with a leg injury, but he will return today vs. the Jets. He will centre his usual line with Jussi Jokinen and James Neal on his wings. Malkin has recorded 41 points (9G / 32A) in 32 games, activate him in all formats.
Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma said that Malkin (leg) "might" play this afternoon.
Malkin will be a game-time decision for this afternoon's matchup with the Jets. The Pens will get Letang back today, so getting Malkin back would be an added bonus. He will be a game-time decision after a nine game absence.
Malkin (leg) will be re-evaluated on Sunday and could play vs. the Jets.
Malkin participated in practice this morning and took reps on the Penguins power-play, which is a good sign that he could be available on Sunday. He will likely visit doctors in the morning and a decision will be made shortly after. Monitor his status in the morning as the puck-drops at 1:00 p.m EST.
Malkin was believed to be at least a game-time decision, but he has already been ruled out. Malkin will miss his ninth consecutive game with a leg injury that he suffered on December 14. He does not appear to Jbe too far away from returning to the lineup, so monitor his status following Saturday's morning skate.
As expected, Malkin (leg) will not play this afternoon vs. New Jersey.
Malkin will miss his eighth straight game today but appears close to returning. He took part in the morning skate once again so he is definitely progressing well. Monitor his status prior to Friday's meeting with the Rangers.
Malkin (leg) will not play on Sunday but is getting close says Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma.
Malkin will miss his seventh consecutive game after suffering a leg injury against the Red Wings on December 14. Despite missing one of the NHL's best players the Penguins continue to win with a patchwork AHL lineup plus Sidney Crosby, so they will take things slow with Malkin.
Malkin (lower-body) is not on the ice for the Penguins morning skate, so he is not expected to dress tonight.
Malkin will miss his fifth straight game with a leg injury that he suffered on December 14 in Detroit. With the three-day Christmas break on the horizon it is not a surprise to see Malkin sitting out tonight. Consider him day-to-day.
Malkin (left leg) did not finish a win Saturday at Detroit. He did not put pressure on the leg while leaving the ice but was limping on it afterward in the locker area. His leg had not been placed in a protective boot. Malkin was to be re-evaluated in Pittsburgh.
Early indications Sunday were that Malkin's injury was minor and to the muscular area, but the Penguins were awaiting results of other tests. Malkin had played in three consecutive games after missing two in a row because of a lower-body injury.
Malkin crashed into the boards legs first and has been helped to the dressing room in Saturday's win over the Red Wings.
Malkin walked with a slight limp in the locker room following the game. “He has a lower-body injury,” coach Dan Bylsma said. “He was walking around after the game, but he'll get further evaluated (Sunday).”
