Pens' Malkin Could Return Next Week

News: If Evgeni Malkin (lower body) skates over the weekend, then he will probably accompany the team on its West Coast road trip.
Analysis: "That's going to be the key thing, whether the trainers clear (Evgeni Malkin) to get on the ice or not," coach Mike Johnston said. Pittsburgh travels to Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver next week.

Pens' Malkin Not Expected Back This Week

News: The Pens won't know Evgeni Malkin's (lower body) status until he skates, something which he's not expected to do for "three or four days, for sure," according to coach Mike Johnston.
Analysis: It seems safe to rule out Evgeni Malkin for Pittsburgh's upcoming four-game week, which starts Tuesday against Winnipeg. Malkin and Sidney Crosby are tied for the team lead in points with 51.

Pens Place Malkin On Injured Reserve

News: Evgeni Malkin (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Evgeni Malkin's move to injured reserve is retroactive to Jan. 20, which will enable him to return to action at any point after Tuesday's game against the Jets. He remains without a concrete timetable at this point, but the team should provide an update on the 28-year-old once he resumes skating.

Pens' Malkin (Lower Body) Out For All-Star Game

News: Evgeni Malkin (lower body) has been ruled out for the All-Star Game and has no timetable for a return.
Analysis: Evgeni Malkin suffered the injury during the second period of Tuesday's game against the Flyers and was ruled out from playing in Wednesday's match against the Blackhawks after testing his injury during warmups. After the team's medical staff reviewed his condition Thursday, it's now looking like Malkin's absence could extend beyond the break, potentially creating a major void in the Pittsburgh lineup. If Malkin does indeed miss further games due to the injury, Brandon Sutter would likely step in as the Pens' new second-line center.

Penguins' Malkin (Lower Body) Sidelined

News: Evgeni Malkin (lower body) will not participate in this weekend's NHL All-Star Game, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Analysis: Moreover, the report indicates that Evgeni Malkin will probably miss time beyond the NHL's All-Star break due to his unspecified lower-body injury. "With (Malkin), he won't be ready to play right after the break," according to GM Jim Rutherford. "It's probably an injury that will take a little time to heal." Rutherford further added that the Penguins should have a better read on Malkin's post-break status once the team regroups on Monday.

Pens' Malkin (Undisclosed) A Late Scratch

News: Updating a previous report, Evgeni Malkin (undisclosed) will be scratched for Wednesday's tilt with the Blackhawks, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Analysis: Evgeni Malkin had been listed on the second line, per the Penguins' official Twitter account, but it now appears he'll sit this one out. He apparently failed to complete his pregame warmups, so the Pens will take a cautious approach here, allowing Malkin to join Kris Letang and Simon Despres on the scratch list. His next chance to return to the ice will come Tuesday against the Jets.

Pens' Malkin (Undisclosed) Appears Good To Go

News: Evgeni Malkin (undisclosed) is listed on the Pens' second line in advance of Wednesday's contest with the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Evgeni Malkin was considered a game time decision after suffering an apparent injury in Tuesday's contest, but it doesn't look like it will force him to miss time. He'll skate alongside Nick Spaling and Beau Bennet.

Pens' Malkin Iffy For Wednesday's Game

News: Evgeni Malkin (undisclosed) is a question mark for Wednesday's game against the Blackhawks, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.
Analysis: Evgeni Malkin required a trip to the locker room during Tuesday's physical clash with the Flyers, but returned to the ice soon thereafter. However, he looked to be a bit hobbled and didn't skate after the 15:55 mark of the third period. The team's training staff will likely see how his body responded overnight before rendering a decision on his status before warmups.

Malkin Hurt, Returns For Pens On Tuesday

News: Evgeni Malkin tallied an assist and seven shots in a 3-2 OT loss to Philadelphia on Tuesday.
Analysis: He missed part of the game after appearing to hurt his ankle but returned without further incident. Evgeni Malkin leads Pittsburgh with 19 goals and 51 points in 45 games.

Pens' Malkin Picks Up Two More Points

News: Evgeni Malkin recorded his fourth multipoint effort in five games Tuesday, tallying two assists against Minnesota.
Analysis: With 49 points (19G, 30A), Evgeni Malkin has moved into second place in the NHL scoring race, three points behind Philadelphia's Jakub Voracek. He also features a 14.6 shooting percentage, nearly mirroring his 14.7 mark accomplished during his Art Ross Trophy run in 2011-12. Malkin is healthy, confident and playing his best hockey in several years. He's doing this despite a revolving door of linemates -- currently Beau Bennett and Nick Spaling are skating with him at even strength.

Pens' Malkin Adds Goal, Assist In Win

News: Evgeni Malkin picked up a goal and an assist in Wednesday's overtime loss to the Bruins.

Pens' Malkin Snaps Slump Friday

News: Evgeni Malkin registered his 17th goal and added an assist Friday in a 6-3 win over the Lightning.
Analysis: The goal was just Evgeni Malkin's second in his last 12 contests. His two-point night was even more impressive considering he played with Andrew Ebbett and Bryan Rust for much of the game. Coach Mike Johnston returned him to the center position after he skated left wing with Sidney Crosby on Thursday -- the Pens coach said he prefers the three center model which includes Crosby, Malkin and Sutter up the middle (when healthy). Malkin recorded a power-play assist in a 4-0 win in Montreal on Nov. 18th -- Pittsburgh's opponent Saturday night.

Pens' Malkin (Personal) Back With Team Friday

News: Evgeni Malkin (personal) returned to practice and will be available for Friday's game against the Lightning, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Evgeni Malkin sat out Thursday's session for personal reasons, but cleared any concerns about his availability for Friday's game by rejoining the team. He created waves at the end of the Pens' morning skate by fighting with teammate Craig Adams, but neither player appears to have incurred any sort of injury as a result of the dust-up.

Pens' Malkin (Personal) Misses Practice

News: Evgeni Malkin missed Thursday's practice for personal reasons, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: The Penguins did not provide any more detail into what caused Evgeni Malkin's absence, but if the personal issue is anything serious, there's a chance he could miss Friday's game against Tampa Bay.

Pens' Malkin Twice Called For Diving Saturday

News: Evgeni Malkin, who saw his six-game point streak end Saturday, was twice called for embellishment penalties against Florida.
Analysis: The league will review the penalty infractions -- one of which appeared questionable -- before deciding whether to fine him. Evgeni Malkin hit a post Saturday but came up empty after five shots on goal. He remains Pittsburgh's leading point-getter with 38 points (15G, 23A).

Analysis: Evgeni Malkin now leads the team in scoring -- he has one more point than Sidney Crosby (36 to 35). He's also the only Pittsburgh top-six forward to play in all 29 games -- remarkable considering he missed the entire preseason with an undisclosed injury.

Malkin Sans Crosby Does Just Fine For Pens

News: Evgeni Malkin tallied a pair of assists, finished with a plus-2 rating and registered four shots on goal Friday.
Analysis: With Sidney Crosby in the lineup, Evgeni Malkin has averaged .44 goals per game and 1.19 points per game, respectively, and .58 goals/gm and 1.35 points/gm without him. The Pens will look toward Malkin once again Saturday with Crosby already ruled out in Columbus.

News: Evgeni Malkin potted his 13th goal of the year Saturday, an unassisted effort which gave Pittsburgh an early 1-0 lead against the Sens.
Analysis: He skated as a winger with the Pens short-handed due to injuries, but that didn't stop him from netting his sixth goal in the last eight games. Evgeni Malkin also picked up two PIM and two shots on goal while finishing with a plus-1 rating against Ottawa.
