Penguins' Malkin out of All-Star Game

Pittsburgh Penguins center Evgeni Malkin will not play in the 2015 Honda NHL All-Star Game because of a lower-body injury, the team announced Thursday.

Center - PIT
GOALS: 19 | ASST: 32 | PTS: 51
SOG: 142 | +/-: 1

"With [Malkin] he won't be ready to play right after the break," general manager Jim Rutherford told the Tribune-Review. "It's probably an injury that will take a little time to heal."

Rutherford would not put a timetable on how long Malkin could be out.

"I really won't know until we come back out of the break," Rutherford said. "He's going to be in town here during the break rehabbing. We'll have a better idea once we regroup on Monday."

Quote of the Day

— Senators goalie Andrew Hammond, who defeated the Jets on Wednesday to improve to 6-0-1 since making his first NHL start on Feb. 18
