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

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
