Forward Beau Bennett will miss 8-to-10 weeks after undergoing wrist surgery on Monday. Bennett was hurt during Friday's victory over the New York Islanders. This is Bennett's second trip to the injured list this season. He previously missed 11 games because of a lower body injury.
The Penguins will also be without forward Tanner Glass for 3-to-4 weeks after Glass broke his hand in a loss to Montreal on Saturday.
Defenceman Paul Martin will sit out Wednesday's game against Toronto due to a lower-body injury.
The Penguins called up Andrew Ebbett from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL on Tuesday. Ebbett had six goals and nine assists in 18 games there.
