Pittsburgh Penguins forward Chuck Kobasew will miss 3-4 weeks with a lower-body injury, the team announced Tuesday.

Kobasew suffered the injury early in a 3-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Monday. The veteran wing has two goals in 12 games this season.

The Penguins also announced forward Beau Bennett could return to practice this week. Bennett hasn't played since Oct. 12 due to a lower-body injury.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.
