It's believed that his ailment is related to his surgically-repaired shoulder, which nearly threatened his availability for the start of the regular season. The 20-year-old has a goal and nine points over 20 games on the campaign.
Pens' Maatta Reportedly Placed On IR
The Penguins have reportedly placed Maatta (upper body) on IR, Dan Potash of Root Sports Pittsburgh reports.Maatta unexpectedly missed Monday's game and didn't play Friday, either.

After Thursday's practice, coach Mike Johnston announced Maatta would undergo further testing to determine the extent of his injury. The Penguins offer to have a clearer picture of his health by the end of the weekend.

Since returning from surgery on his thyroid gland on Nov. 18, Maatta has produced no goals and three helpers over 10 games.
Neutral Zone Wrap: Tis the season to shop wisely
Try to keep your head while those around you lose theirs. Evan Berofsky gives shopping advice for Penguins, Ducks, Leafs, Flyers and Oilers.
|At age 19, Olli Maatta surprised observers with an excellent rookie season at both ends of the ice. Picked 22nd overall in the 2012 draft, the Finnish defenseman scored nine goals and 29 points in 78 games. He also helped fantasy owners with 112 blocks and even saw a little power-play time (3PPG, 3 PPA). Maatta will serve as a top-four blueliner in 2014-15, though he might miss the first month or so due to off-season shoulder surgery. He's thought to be more of a two-way player than an offensive defenseman, but his freshman campaign gave fantasy owners more than a little hope he can contribute offensively. (Updated 8/13/14) |
