Malkin returns to ice with 30-minute skate

Center - PIT
GOALS: 4 | ASST: 17 | PTS: 21
SOG: 60 | +/-: -4
Pittsburgh Penguins center Evgeni Malkin, who is on injured reserve with a concussion, skated in Pittsburgh on Wednesday while his teammates are on a three-game road trip.

Malkin skated for 30 minutes and reported no symptoms, according to the Penguins. There is no timetable for his return.

"Malkin did skate back in Pittsburgh," head coach Dan Bylsma said. "He was symptom-free (Tuesday) and progressed to exercise today. I think he was on the ice for 30 minutes or so."

Malkin took a hard spill into the boards Friday during the Penguins' 3-1 victory against the Florida Panthers at Consol Energy Center. In the days that followed, Malkin reported memory loss and was placed on injured reserve.

Quote of the Day

He stuck his neck out there for us. I don't know what's wrong with him, but you see he was in pain. But he went back in there. He's a tough guy. You've got to give him credit for helping the boys out.
