Report: Staal has setback with foot
According to a Pittsburgh Post-Gazette report, center Jordan Staal has experienced some difficulty with his right foot and will be re-evaluated next week to see if he will be ready to participate in training camp.

Penguins general manager Ray Shero said the tendon on the top of Staal's foot that was cut April 30 is strong, but that there are other issues hindering Staal.

"This is a matter of whether he will be ready for training camp and then, if not, when can he go hard," Shero told the paper.





Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
