Once again, it appears as though injuries are making life difficult for both Beau Bennett and the Pittsburgh Penguins.
The oft-injured young forward won’t play against the New York Rangers in Game 3 thanks to an upper-body issue. It’s not immediately clear what caused Bennett’s most recent ailment.
The 23-year-old hasn’t had a point in his last four games, including Pittsburgh’s first two playoff contests. He only managed to play in 49 regular season contests in 2014-15, which still marks a career-high for the 20th pick of the 2010 NHL Draft.
Scott Wilson will slide into Bennett’s spot on a line with Brandon Sutter and Steve Downie.
