Pittsburgh Penguins forward Beau Bennett will miss 8-10 weeks after surgery on a broken hand/wrist, coach Dan Bylsma said on Monday night following a 4-3 overtime loss to the Boston Bruins at TD Garden.
Bennett, 21, had a goal and two assists in 12 games this season. He left during Pittsburgh's 4-3 win against the New York Islanders on Friday at Consol Energy Center.
In 38 career games, Bennett has four goals and 13 assists. He was Pittsburgh's first-round pick (No. 20) at the 2010 NHL Draft.
