Penguins center Jordan Staal is expected to miss the start of the regular season following a procedure this week to cure an infection in his foot, the team announced today.

Staal's recovery period is expected to be 5-6 weeks. The Penguins open the regular season Oct. 7 against Philadelphia.

Staal originally suffered a lacerated tendon in his foot in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against Montreal. The tendon was repaired by off-season surgery.
