Penguins' Scuderi out indefinitely with broken ankle

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Rob Scuderi will be out indefinitely with a broken ankle that will require surgery.

Scuderi left the Penguins' game against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday with what was described as a lower-body injury. He returned to Pittsburgh for an examination by team doctors on Monday.

Scuderi had played in 276 consecutive games before breaking his ankle. He had one assist and was a plus-5 in 11 games.

The Penguins won their first game without Scuderi on Monday, a 3-1 road win against the Carolina Hurricanes.

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.

— Penguins GM Jim Rutherford on forward Brandon Sutter
