Pens worried Bennett’s injury might be serious


Pittsburgh Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma seems concerned about Beau Bennett. He told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review on Saturday that the young forward’s undisclosed injury will miss the team’s two-game road trip and is out “longer than days.”

(So does that mean he’s week-to-week?)

Bennett, 21, dealt with a problematic lower-body issue early this season. He scored his first goal of 2013-14 on Nov. 20 and was getting a spin in the top-six, so Bylsma seems disappointed that the sophomore will be sidetracked again.

“I thought the game in Washington was a real good game for him,” Bylsma said. “He missed a lot of hockey early in the season. Getting his feet under him, adjusting to a top-six role, he was just starting to play his best. Obviously, it’s disappointing.”
