PITTSBURGH - The Pittsburgh Penguins say forward Ruslan Fedotenko will miss four-to-six weeks with a broken right hand.

Fedotenko injured his hand less than two minutes into Tuesday night's game against the Atlanta Thrashers in a one-punch fight against former Penguin Colby Armstrong.

Fedotenko decked Armstrong with the punch, although Fedotenko rarely fights.

The Penguins say Fedotenko has been placed on injured reserve.

Forward Pascal Dupuis sustained an unspecified injury in the same game, but coach Michel Therrien has said he could return to the lineup in the next few days.

Quote of the Day

What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
