The news just keeps getting worse for the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Just as players such as Tyler Kennedy and Ryan Whitney started returning to the line-up, the Pittsburgh Penguins will now be without winger Ruslan Fedotenko for between four and six weeks.
Fedotenko broke his right hand during a fight with Colby Armstrong of the Atlanta Thrashers on Tuesday.
Ruslan Fedotenko had been one of the few players that was performing well for the Pittsburgh Penguins recently.
Ruslan Fedotenko was really starting to gel on a line with Evgeni Malkin and Petr Sykora prior to being injured. Not only was he creating scoring changes, he was working hard and he was definitely trying to generate offense for the Penguins.
The same cannot be said for many other players on the team.
Unfortunately the struggles will continue for the Pittsburgh Penguins who currently sit tenth place in the Eastern Conference.
Will Ruslan Fedotenko's injury cause the Penguins to make a trade or will they continue to utilize AHL call-ups?
I don't believe this injury changes Ray Shero's plans at all. Miroslav Satan will fill in for Fedotenko on the Malkin line and the fourth line will be filled with players from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.
