This is not what Pittsburgh Penguins fans or any hockey fans want to hear, but it has been revealed that star forward Evgeni Malkin will not be in the Pens' lineup on Wednesday to face the Vancouver Canucks.
Malkin will miss his first game of the season with an upper-body injury.
It has not been mentioned if the injury happened during Saturday night's contest against the Chicago Blackhawks or if it's a wear-and-tear type ailment that happened over the recent weeks.
The Pens have back-to-back games against the Boston Bruins and the Tampa Bay Lightning on Friday and Saturday. He is questionable for these games.
We will keep you posted when Malkin is back in action...
