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.
It is really special. I had a lot of friends and family here tonight, and for my first [NHL] game in here it was great. I played here as an elementary-school player in the city championships and this was my first time back. It was a lot of fun.
