So far, so good for Pittsburgh Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin’s recovery from a concussion.

The reigning Hart Trophy winner was on the ice for the second straight day on Thursday, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

He also took to Twitter to share a video of him launching a puck into a bucket from the other end of the ice.

Penguins coach Dan Bylsma added that Malkin hasn’t experienced symptoms since the weekend.

The 26-year-old has missed the Pittsburgh Penguins last three games and still has some hurdles he needs to overcome before the Penguins can think about putting him back into the lineup.

Malkin can’t participate in contact drills until he gets medical clearance and he’ll need to pass a baseline test before he’s eligible to play.
