Downie will play on the Penguins top line on Saturday.
Downie took line rushes with Sidney Crosby and Nick Spaling during pre-game warmups this afternoon. The Penguins have been banged up at forward, so Downie, who has just 10 points (3G / 7A) in 25 games, will skate with Crosby vs. the Senators.
The Penguins have signed Steve Downie to a one-year, $1 million dollar deal.
Downie scored four goals with 20 assists and 106 penalty minutes in 62 games between the Avalanche and the Flyers. Downie battled a number of injuries including a concussion in 2013-14, so the Penguins take nearly no risk by signing him to a one-year, million dollar contract.
Downie (concussion) is expected to return on Saturday.
Downie has missed the last six games with a concussion he suffered on March 22nd. Since returning to Philadelphia early in the season, Downie has 17 points (3G / 14A) in 49 games. If he returns, expect Vincent Lecavalier to move up from the fourth line and Tye McGinn to be sent back to Adirondack (AHL).
Downie will miss his fourth straight game on Sunday. He is dealing with a "head" injury, which has not been labeled as a concussion. He was on the ice Saturday morning, but still will not return tomorrow.
Downie (upper-body) will not return to Saturday's game.
Downie was injured in the first period of this afternoon's game after a collision with Patrik Berglund. Downie was down on the ice for a few minutes before being helped off. Michael Raffl will likely see the majority of Downie's shifts.
Downie will be a healthy scratch tonight vs. the Rangers, after head coach Craig Berube said that his effort level shift-to-shift needs to be higher. Downie has not recorded a point in his last 10 games and is a minus-4 over that span. Tye McGinn will move to the third line, like he did in the third period on Saturday and Rosehill will slot in on the fourth line.
Downie (upper-body) will play tonight in Edmonton.
Downie missed the last two games after suffering an upper-body injury last week. Downie has two goals and 10 assists in 20 games since being traded to the Flyers. He will likely slot in on the fourth line with Adam Hall and Zac Rinaldo.
Downie (concussion) is expected to return to the Flyers lineup tonight; Michael Raffl (illness) out.
Downie missed four games after suffering a concussion in a fight on November 1. Tonight will be his second game back with the Flyers, he had one goal and six assists in 11 games with the Avalanche. Downie will skate on the third line with Matt Read and Sean Couturier.
Steve Downie (concussion) is practicing on a line with Sean Couturier and Matt Read, a good indicator he could be back tomorrow vs. Ottawa.
Downie has missed the last four games after being concussed in a fight on his first game back with the Flyers. He had a goal and an assist in 11 games with the Avalanche before being traded to Philly. Monitor his status during Tuesday's morning skate.
