PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh Penguins forward Jordan Staal, expected to return this week after missing 12 games with an infection in his right foot, will be out indefinitely after sustaining an undisclosed injury during practice.

Staal left practice after about a half-hour Monday with what coach Dan Bylsma said was an upper-body injury.

Staal, one of the NHL's best two-way forwards, could not work out during the offseason and missed training camp after developing multiple infections in a foot that was cut during the Stanley Cup playoffs last spring. He resumed skating Oct. 11, but Bylsma said he needed considerable ice time to get back into game shape.
