Bennett did not play on Saturday and could miss an extended period of time.
Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma said that Bennett's injury is more than day-to-day. It remains an undisclosed injury, but we should get a more detailed report in the new week. In his absence Matt D'Agostini rejoins the lineup.
Bennett has been moved to the top-line with Sidney Crosby and Chris Kunitz in Penguins practice.
Bennett has not registered a point in four games since returning from a lower-body injury. He has two assists in nine total games this season. Skating with Crosby and Kunitz should help Bennett get things going offensively.
Penguins Beau Bennett (lower-body), a candiate to rejoin the lineup in St. Louis Saturday, is again on the ice for practice.
Bennett has been practicing all week so it seems very likely that he will return on Saturday. Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma said that Bennett will likely return on the third line, but with James Neal not coming back until next week - Bennett could play with Evgeni Malkin and Jussi Jokinen on Saturday.
Beau Bennett is on the ice for Penguins' team practice.
Bennett has missed the last 10 games with a lower-body injury. He started to practice last week, but with the Penguins back-to-back on Friday and Saturday he was unable to skate with the team. Consider him questionable for Wednesday's matchup with the Rangers. Keep in mind Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma said Bennett would likely skate on the third line when he returns.
Beau Bennett has been re-assigned to the Wheeling Nailers of the ECHL.
All preseason Bennett had growing hype because there were reports he would start the season with Evgeni Malkin and James Neal. While his re-assignment looks like a paper transaction, it appears as if Jussi Jokinen has slid in with Malkin and Neal instead of Bennett.
Bennett, 21, collected three assists in four games with WBS during his most-recent AHL assignment. The 6-foot-2, 207-pound Bennett has played in 19 NHL games with Pittsburgh this season, notching nine points (2G-7A) and a plus-7 rating. After going scoreless in his first four NHL games, Bennett has collected nine points over his past 15 games.
