Penguins' Scuderi has surgery for broken ankle

Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Rob Scuderi had surgery Wednesday to repair a broken ankle sustained blocking a shot during a game Oct. 26 against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Scuderi is expected to miss 6-8 weeks.

The 34-year-old has one assist and a plus-5 rating in 11 games this season. He had played in 276 consecutive games.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
