Martin suffered a broken hand in Sochi. With just eight weeks left in the regular season, Martin will miss at least four weeks of action. The Penguins will be without their top two defensemen as Martin joins Kris Letang (stroke) on IR.
Still no timetable for Martin's return from a hand injury.
Martin has been spotted wearing a cast on his hand/wrist, but the Penguins have yet to release the severity of his injury. They will already be without Kris Letang, so losing Martin further weakens their blueline. Simon Despres who was recalled on Monday has a great opportunity to showcase his ability with Martin and Letang sidelined.
Martin (leg) may be returning to the Penguins blueline tonight.
Martin skated with the team over the weekend and is on the ice for the gameday skate. He is skating alongside Brooks Orpik which suggests he will be back in tonight. Will update following the morning skate.
Martin has a fractured tibia and will be out approximately 4-6 weeks, per coach Dan Bylsma.
This is a terrible break for the Penguins. Martin is one of their more reliable defenseman and brings a lot to their top power-play unit. The injury will move Kris Letang back to the top-unit and could thrust Simon Despres into the lineup for the foreseeable future. Expect Martin back after Christmas.
The Penguins have placed Paul Martin (lower-body) on IR.
The Penguins have not announced the nature or severity of Martin's injury, but his placement on IR means that he will miss at least one week. Head coach Dan Bylsma said that "we will know more in couple of days" so they will likely release a full injury report on Martin later today or tomorrow. For now Simon Despres has been recalled.
The Penguins did not say what the nature or severity of Martin's injury is, but a further update will come in a few days. For now consider him day-to-day. Robert Bortuzzo will likely enter the lineup and if the injury is serious, Simon Despres could be recalled.
Martin missed the last two games after being injured on November 6. Kris Letang will be a game-time decision, if he is unable to play, Martin will take his spot on the top power-play unit. He has one goals and five assists in 16 games this season.
Martin (lower-body) is on the ice for the Penguins morning skate.
Martin has missed the last two games but appears to be in line to return tonight vs. Nashville. Martin is a key part of the Penguins blueline, they lost both contests that he missed. Martin has one goal and six points in 16 games.
Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma says Martin is day-to-day and could miss Flyers game Wednesday.
Martin missed Saturday's game vs. St. Louis and his status for Wednesday remains uncertain. The Penguins will release an update following Wednesday's morning skate. He has one goal and five assists in 16 contests.
Martin (undisclosed) is not on the ice for the second day in a row.
Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma said that yesterday was a maintenance day for Martin, so that would suggest that he will be in the lineup tomorrow vs. St. Louis. Monitor his status during Saturday morning's game-day skate.
Martin doesn't expect to play tonight but hopes to Saturday. "I feel good," he said repeatedly #Penguins
Martin has been out since March 28th with a hand injury. Martin was enjoying one of his best offensive seasons. Despite only playing in 33 games this year, he has already tied his career high in goals (6).
