Staal Continues Progression

Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma gave an update on the injury status of Jordan Staal.

Bylsma said that Staal is still on track for his recovery time from the Nov. 2 surgery he underwent to repair a broken hand.

"Jordan continues to progress in the timeline that we had before," Bylsma said. "He's scheduled for another x-ray next week after having the pin taken out. There is calcification in his bone and we need to continue to see that next week in his scheduled x-ray. He'll keep rehabbing on his current course."

Bylsma was asked about a report by The Insider on Pittsburgh Sports, which said that Staal had another broken bone in his hand.

"If you're referencing an internet report that said there was another break, then that is not true," Bylsma said. "He's continuing on the same course. He has the pin out. There is calcification and we have another scheduled x-ray. We hope to continue seeing the healing that is taken place. He's on that rehab program."
