Broken hand to sideline Penguins' Martin 4-6 weeks
Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Paul Martin will be sidelined 4-6 weeks with a broken hand he sustained playing for the United States at the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Paul Martin will be sidelined 4-6 weeks with a broken hand sustained playing for the United States at the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

The news was reported via the Penguins' Twitter account on Tuesday.

The hope is that Martin, who missed the last two games for the United States against Canada and Finland at the Olympics, will be ready to play when the Stanley Cup Playoffs begin in mid-April. Martin has two goals and 12 points in 33 games for the Penguins.

The Penguins also revealed that goalie Tomas Vokoun, who hasn't played a game this season after developing blood clots in his leg in September, has been cleared to practice with the team. There is no timetable for his return.

Quote of the Day

I feel that responsibility, I've felt it for the last two years. We core guys get a lot of minutes, we get a lot of opportunity out there. Our teammates, the organization and fans look to us to be the guys to put the puck in the net and to create momentum out there.
