Marc-Andre Fleury - Practiced recently for the first time since suffering an undisclosed injury on November 15th. Return date is unsure. [PittsburghLive.com]

Ryan Whitney - He has been practicing with the Penguins for a few weeks now, but does not take part in the entire practice. He will not be able to return until at least the new year. Whitney has missed the entire season since having foot surgery in the summer. [NHL.com]
