PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury is undergoing the NHL's concussion protocol and is out indefinitely.

Coach Mike Sullivan said Fleury approached the staff following Monday night's 4-1 loss to Washington and said he did not feel right. Fleury will not be with the team on Wednesday night when the Penguins play at Boston. Fleury has been one of the few bright spots during Pittsburgh's sluggish start. Fleury is 13-10-2 with a 2.29 goals against average. His .926 save percentage is 10th best in the NHL. Jeff Zatkoff will start against the Bruins.

Pittsburgh will also be without forward Beau Bennett for 4-6 weeks after Bennett suffered an upper body injury when he was hit into the boards by Washington's T.J. Oshie on Monday night.
