Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury suffered an undisclosed injury and did not attend Pittsburgh's practice on Monday. He is listed as day-to-day and will not play against the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday night at Mellon Arena at 7 p.m.

"He's not going to play (Tuesday)," head coach Michel Therrien said. "It's not a major injury but we don't want to take any risks. That's why we want to be really cautious with his injury."

Therrien confirmed that Fleury suffered the injury late in Saturday's game against the Buffalo Sabres. Fleury still played the entire game.

If he isn't healthy enough to backup Dany Sabourin on Tuesday night then the Penguins will re-call a goalie from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.

Defenseman Philippe Boucher practiced for the first time with Pittsburgh on Monday. The veteran, who was acquired on Sunday in a trade with Dallas in exchange for Darryl Sydor, skated with several different defensive partners during the practice session.

"It's exciting," said Boucher, who will wear No. 43 with Pittsburgh. "I was glad I could come in last night and be with the guys today. The last 48 hours have been hard on the family but we're all excited to be a part of the Penguins now."
